|Ali Hassan Kuban droppin’ rhymes.|
Yesterday’s Thai Mor Lam groove was gotten through guitar trance induction, today’s trance groove is drum induced. Can you tell I’m diggin’ the crates for some new kind of groove? If, you’ve never heard the insanely funky African music of Egypt’s Godfather of Nubian music Ali Hassan Kuban, consider yourself unlucky. Good for you…today’s your lucky day! Driven by African tar (a single-frame drum) and a multitude of various percussion instruments, Ali intertwined slippery bass heavy melodies with the Nubian speedy polyrhythmic tradition of older Egyptian music to create something akin to sung Afro-drum and bass music.
How about the bagpipe driven Afro-Trance Funk of Koma Wo Beda?
