Afro Roots

 

 

“Sounds Of Africadeus” Afro Roots trilogy — compiled by Jaro

————————————————————————————————————————————-

In “Sounds of Africadeus”, Jaro digs deep through the vaults of traditional Afro Roots music via exclusive label archives using currently available recorded mediums (DAT, DVD-R, and Cassette Tape). In a fresh attempt to explore the roots of contemporary African music, he helps showcase a unique and vibrant selection of musicians and their songs. The music is characterized by trance-like repetitions of a short melody which is subtly altered over the course of each song. The solo parts of the individual musicians are woven into a communal tapestry of highly complex melodies.

Jaro’s Afro Roots trilogy has been positively considered by a large group community of ethnomusicologists and organic beat aficionados to successfully showcase some of the most dynamic traditional musicians stemming from the African continent !
