Francisco, California, USA – Multi-instrumentalist and master didjeridu player
Stephen Kent’s new CD, Oil & Water (Family Tree FTCD 1001),
conjures up a musical landscape in which opposites meet and where cool
conversations between distinct cultures begin.
“It’s like good cooking, combining strong elements from
divergent sources with music as the common language” says Kent. By
bringing Kent’s didjeridu together with other extraordinary musicians – Yassir
Chadly, from a Moroccan tradition, Scots piper Jimi McRae, and the
sensational Tuvan throat singer Igor Koshkendey – Oil & Water opens
the ears to a new world of possibilities.
