Jah Wobble & The Nippon Dub Ensemble and Calum MacCrimmon will perform on Saturday, January 22 at 7:30pm at The Arches.
The latest intriguing project from Cockney cross-cultural veteran Jah Wobble, who’s worked with such illustrious fellow mavericks as Brian Eno, Massive Attack, Bill Laswell and Björk, aligns his seismic bass grooves and love of dub reggae with the otherworldly sounds of Japanese music. Traditional folk songs and instrumentation, taiko drumming and Shinto ritual feature alongside Wobble’s bass, keyboards and programming.
Man’s Ruin sees Breabach’s Calum MacCrimmon laying aside his bagpipes and stepping up on vocals (plus whistles and electric guitar), performing original funk-based songs and tunes, with a line-up also featuring fiddle, accordion, brass, bass and percussion.
