album info

Following FUFU TRYOUT and MORE FUFU!, two releases that pay homage to the great masters of African music, the agile collective PLURISM around the tireless drummer and collector of sounds, Dominic Egli, presents its latest album, AZANIA IN MIND that resonates with stories from the African universe. Known for his raw sensuality, explosive coolness and down-to-earth playfulness, Dominic Egli has again gathered around him his dream line-up Ganesh Geymeier (ts), Raffaele Bossard (b) and the renowned South African trumpet player Feya Faku, with the expressive South African singer Siya Makuzeni joining the group on three tracks to create song-like melodies, complex and driving grooves and erruptive solos. PLURISM blends elements of African music cultures, collective improvisation and individual musical statements into a coherent sound and a colourful call for a decolonised encounter with the African continent, its people and its cultures.
