Mkwaju Ensemble - Ki-Motion LP


Mkwaju Ensemble - Ki-Motion
Better Days/WRWTFWW, 1982/2018
Vinyl LP

Whatever horrors the dreaded alogrithms that now control all facets of our lives have brought or may bring, at least we can thank them for bringing the previously obscure Japanese composer and percussionist Midori Takada into the ambient canon and also sparking a run of high quality reissues on her backcatalog from That Swiss Label With The Ridiculous Name That I'm Not Going To Type Out. The latest of these, her earliest album with the Mkwaju Ensemble, gets considerably heavier than her much sweated solo LPs, frequently cracking open those minimalist marimba moves into pure tribal psychadelic decadence.
