BARAKAYA

SATTVA MUSIC SKV 083 / PRUDENCE 398.6715.2 (Re-release Oct.2005)



The word "Barakaya" has common roots in the Hebrew and the Arabian language and also in some East African dialects. It means "blessing", "luck", or "gift".
With this album Gandalf has come closer than ever to his goal, to create something like a Global Music, trying to dissolve bordres between different musical cultures. Some of the songs have a native American influence, others seem to be based on African roots, another, played on a sitar, sounds more Indian, one is inspired by Irish Folk Music, all connected by Gandalf´s very unique way of merging a multitude of acoustic and electronic sounds into colorful musical paintings.
Emily Burridge from England adds a very special note to the music by her singing and chanting, insprired by tha native language of the Xavante-Indians ffom Brazil. Also she brings in a lot of harmony and warmth with her melodioud cello-playing.
