Curious waves of magic are weaved when you embark on today’s sonic voyage! The flute alone could lure a billion snakes out of hiding or, akin to a type of pied piper, could steal many an unsuspecting ear with its hypnotic siren-type wizardry! This mesmerising spell pivots around many an Ethiojazz influence, but the flute explores the outer realms of an Eastern-inspired melody. It’s a heady fusion of sound that could easily have been recorded 40 years ago…..but no, this is only five years old!
Bones is the opening track to Black Flowers 2016 album, Artifacts. Black Flowers have appeared on the LP Blog a couple of times (find more here) and are a Belgian band who like to explore the cosmic worlds of trance-inducing rhythms and Ethiojazz! Influenced by artists such as Mulatu Astatke, sax giant Getatchew Mekurya and afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti, Black Flower produce a fascinating blend psychedelia and ethiogroove…which is demonstrated perfectly in today’s song – which you can listen to above and watch below!
