Jengi (LP)

Format: LP

Genre: Experimental

In stock


Älforjs is a Lisbon based trio and Jengi is the name of their first album. Jengi is the Baka pygmy spirit of the forest, he is in our collective conscious, on our constant look for the wild and the unknown. Their works with which we’re familiar with present a focus on processual minimalism (hypnosis is the holy way to reach the unheard); a rocker’s propulsion derived mostly from the drums; lots of arpeggio work coming in from the double-bass; and André’s electronics working as much as an extra lawyer on top of the ritualistic rhythm section, but also as a trigger for less linear musical and narrative sequences, of these improvisation of apparently neo-shamanic nature
