Talvin Singh, tabla maestro and founding member of the Asian Underground movement of 90s Britain, re-released his debut album some years ago. The subtitle, Drum + Space pretty much sums up this highly regarded album. Lots of space age electronic sounds, mixed with real-time airport announcements, tabla and other percussive sounds, these two pieces stretch out slowly towards an unseen and unreachable horizon.
Best served with cocktails, after dinner, when all the jokes have been told and quiet conversations or contemplation are the agenda.
