MOLIMO'S DEBUT ALBUM OUT NOW ON VECTOR SOUNDS! 23 Nov 2015
Chefa Alonso - small percussion, kechapi, soprano sax
Barbara Meyer - cello
Cova Villegas - voice
The trio take us on a journey, a fearless quest to create unexpected, irregular, evocative musical textures while claiming new territories.
Molimo, the song of the forest, is sung by the Bambuti in their rituals. Its mysterious, unfettered sound blends into the woods, mingling with the songs of crickets, frogs and night birds. It seems to always be coming from afar as it steals through the forest, appearing and disappearing but never letting itself be confined.
