New age music from West Africa. Lush and hypnotic dreamscapes combine traditional instrumentation with sweeping electronics, field recordings, and soothing affirmations in these original compositions. Cut up Kora and Balafon are layered over software percussion, flute, horns, and synthesizer. Meditative and cosmic, Fasokan guides the listener through ways of living, from the village life into the modern world. Luka Productions is Luka Guindo, rapper, producer, and multi-instrumentalist. One of the most sought after producers in Bamako, he has worked with Supreme Talent Show, Ami Yerewolo, Iba One, Van Baxy, and many more. Here Luka Productions channels his avant-griot, transforming ancient music into the 21st century. This is one of the most left field recordings to ever come out of Mali. If Sahel Sounds has emerged with a hands off approach, recording as a fly on the wall, Fasokan is a radical departure. A collaborative work stemming from the sci-fi concept album "Uchronia," the album is both an original creation and an cross-cultural experiment, drawing inspiration from new age music, early electronic compositions, and library records. The result is a strange hybrid, wholly unique in sound. In execution, Fasokan finds itself back to Mali, at once strikingly familiar - with the measured voice speaking over a looping melody, offering sage advice for a new world.
