Overview

Release Date:05/05/2017;Notes:Vinyl LP pressing. The work of the Belgian/Congolese duo Denis Mpunga and Paul K. is the subject of Music From Memory's latest compilation EP, Criola. Combining elements of traditional African music with experimental electronics, the pair recorded and released only a handful of tracks, scattered across a few obscure LP and cassette compilations. Bringing together this material for the first time Criola includes both released as well as unreleased material from the musician's archives dating from between 1980-1984. At a time when world-music was becoming hugely popular across Europe especially so in Belgium and France, the pair were keen to try and explore African music in a new contemporary way. Much like the intentionally provocative archival image, which Denis selected for the sleeve of Criola, the recordings set out to play with and challenge preconceptions and expectations of African music and African culture. Together, Denis Mpunga and Paul K.'s, if somewhat brief, musical adventure would create a fascinating new musical language, African music born out of an industrial European landscape music which the compilation Criola reveals as both wholly unique and visionary.;Track List:1.
