Farewell Ferengistan (Six Degrees, 2006)
Banco de Gaia has been making some of the best electronic music to have come out of the UK in recent years. Banco de Gaia has the ability of combining captivating melodies with elaborate layers of synthesizers and world sounds. He also adds a dose of space rock a la Pink Floyd and the resulting cocktail is a fascinating mix.Ferengistan is an ancient region located in Central Asia. The CD interpretation of this land, Farewell Ferengistan, where cultures intersected, is a place where state of the art electronica meets Middle Eastern and Central Asian vocals, techno beats, and distant soundscapes.
