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

In “Sounds of Africadeus”, Jaro Sounder digs deep through the vaults of traditional Afro Roots music via exclusive label archives using currently available recorded mediums (DAT, DVD-R, LP, 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 Sounder’s Afro Roots trilogy has been positively considered by a tight-knit global community of ethnomusicologists and organic beat aficionados to successfully showcase some of the most dynamic sounds stemming from the continent of Africa !
