NEW MUSIC: Orchestra Gold – Maribayassa

a2528575703_10

The sounds of Africa have been explored, excavated and reissued with great enthusiasm in recent years – from the Soundways compilations to Soul Jazz’s Nigeria series and many more. The sound has filtered through into plenty of contemporary acts too – Goat come to mind with their mix of African, psych and Krautrock sounds and this Oakland CA USA group Orchestra Gold are another fine example, with singer/dancer Mariam Diakite and the arranger and guitar player Erich Huffaker, plus an all-star cast comprised of musicians from the Bay Area and Santa Cruz.

II is their third EP, following 0 and I which were released in April this year. Authentic sounds and production, endlessly rhythmic and infectious sounds!

For fans of Khruangbin and Goat.
