The Moonlight Orchestra – Traipsing Bloom

Traipsing Bloom - The Moonlight Orchestra - Sangita

Magical, characterful cosmic tales in poetry and prose are draped in musical perfection on this album from New Antique Records.   Lee Harris, Ben River, Youth and friends are The Moonlight Orchestra. There aren’t many poetry albums in our collection but this os one to lead the way. Classic contemporary soundscapes, beautifully produced by west London’s Ben River, amorphous producer and talented songwriter in his own right, are the perfect backdrop and interlude for the strong psychedelic characters featured here. A host if famous and infamous story tellers and poets, casting light on life’s ineffable mysteries.  Do check it out.. take the trip into beauty of the spoken word.   Above is a sample of one of our favourites from the album featuring the legend that is Alchemy’s Lee Harris and his paean of light, “Shine On”.

The Moonlight Orchestra // Traipsing bloom, a drifting, meandering journey of sonic and aural fusion. Intertwining experimentalism, soundscapes, psychedelia, folk, blues, electronica and featuring guest poets:Daevid Allen, John Sinclair, Lee Harris, Youth and Ben River, who also founded The Moonlight Orchestra and co-composed & produced the album over a three year period.

Dubsahara

Dubsahara

Dubsahara is digital desert music from subsonic-saharan soundscapes. Crystalline technologies, maquam and dastgah are mashed and mixed in these audio adventures. With a whiff of exotic herbal incense and the dream of the next Oasis, the journeys are long and epic, but the vision upon arrival is one to behold a thousand sufi mystic saints.

Greg Hunter shares another perspective of his multi faceted musical personality. In deep subsaharan bass zones the instrumentalists on mighty herbs are playing like dervishes, the frenzied Lila of a Gnawan all-night ritual, the heady sensuality of an arabian breeze under the date trees. Dubsahara is an exotic evocative invocation, an invitation to sample the delights of the divine in Concordance.

Tune in to the Dubsahara channel with archived & live streams and casts.

In the time it takes to tie your Camel to a date tree, you can click play and let 12 exquisite pieces of musical extravagance whirl you away on a cloud of sound faster than a sandstorm in an Oasis.  The metamorphical meanderings contain such timeless classics as Amoroq, Zentopy and Angelix which are widely known across the golden sands of Time as most Mystics favourite sonological ornamention.
