December is just around the corner! This happy month, Aka Moon releases their brand new trio album, NOW , in Belgium & France. After several recorded collaborations with guest musicians, this trio album is a true return to the roots for these three excellent musicians.
Ever since their initial journey through Central Africa accompanied by the Aka Pygmies, the integration of Oriental, African and Indian rhythms gives the band its unique sound which has evolved throughout the years and is still evolving. NOW is an extension of this desire for cultural musical integration. It also marks the unrivalled talent of this band, acquired by their 25 years long career, performing all over the world, as well as the long friendship of these three musicians and the fusion of their individual styles. Titles as Nomadism, The Visitor and Spiritual Exil show that the album doesn't shun current themes as migration and cultural diversity.
