Nomade Orquestra – Nomade Orquestra [FARO189]

NOMADE ORQUESTRA - Nomade Osquestra
Nomade Orquestra came together in Sao Paolo in the year 2012, though they could just as easily have emerged fully formed into our world from a mystical land where spaced out jazz soundtracks daily life and the passing of time is rhythm and groove… such is their elusive, ethereal yet highly accomplished and deeply funky otherness. The time is ripe for ten of the most talented and daring musicians working in Brazil today to deliver their fully formed debut. Effortlessly weaving through the disparate sounds of Brazil’s diverse musical diaspora, the group describe themselves and their shared project as ‘the point where different musical expressions and strands meet and interact in a unique way.’ From funk and soul to Afrobeat, Ethio-grooves, dub and hip hop, their sound remains firmly anchored in the world of jazz while taking off to the cosmic stratosphere and incorporating electronic elements, alongside traditional Brazilian styles along the way

Jimi Tenor – Order of Nothingness [PH45006]

Finland’s Jimi Tenor is simply a great musician, a true visionary when it comes to dance – and non-dance – experimentalism, and one of the few truly imaginative minds left; yes, we know that’s a bold statement, but it’s what we truly believe. Here he is on Philophon with a deeply explorative 7″, starting with the psychedelic hymns of “Order Of Nothingness”, a song that seems to be drenched in 70’s mysticism, but that somehow also sounds utterly contemporary. “Tropical Eel” is more left of field, where digitised Eastern melodies bleep to a steady, jazzy rhythm that simply calls for a head-nod.
