Από ένα κλασικό fusion άλμπουμ των ‘70s, το τρίτο που ο John McLaughlin κυκλοφόρησε με τους Shakti [Zakir Hussain – κρουστά, L. Shankar – βιόλα, βιολί, Vikku Vinayakram – κρουστά] διαλέγουμε το εναρκτήριο κομμάτι. Η μουσική σε παρασέρνει σαν ορμητικό ρεύμα. Η λέξη “συγκλονιστικό” ακούγεται ανάρμοστα φορτισμένη, δύσκολο όμως και να την αποφύγεις.

From a classic fusion album of the ’70s, the third that John McLaughlin released with Shakti [Zakir Hussain – percussion, L. Shankar – viola, violin, Vikku Vinayakram – percussion] we choose the opening track. The music carries you away like a rushing stream. The word “shocking” sounds inappropriately charged, although it’s hard to avoid it.



Stay Safe!

As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the song !

Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
