Kebnekaise III

Label: Silence Records

Format: CD

Genre: Psych

In stock


This is the first reissue of the third Kebnekajse album, originally issued by Silence in 1975. Kebnekajse's music ignored traditional musical boundaries (which must be a hallmark of the term "progressive music"). III continued very much in the same vein, but this time with a more sharply honed politicized edge. This was programmatic, instrumental music with a message. Here you'll find mostly folk tunes but also an instrumental country tune by Kenny called "S:t John" and Ingemar's instrumental ballad called "Balladen Om Björnbär Och Nätmelon" ("The Ballad of Blackberries and Netmelon"), where jazz and rock are glued together by a pure, Swedish folk-tone. The album is finished with an African melody "Mariamá!" pointing towards the next album Ljus Från Afrika (Lights from Africa).
