Township Sessions

Short Excerpts
" The performers were the women in the Philani Mothers choir. The cassette was titled the Philani Mothers Lyrical Health Messages. The message in this song for example deals with the value of breastfeeding. It's called "Ncansisa".

The Philani Mothers choir recording project was completed in 1998. Thousands of cassettes were distributed according to plan. And when Peter Raeburn returned to London, he got to thinking."

" Peter Raeburn collaborated with British-Indian producer and musician Nitin Sawhney on this remix of "ncansisa". The full album "Township Sessions" will be released in the US next month."

**Nitin Sawhney's collabo/remix with the Philani womens choir sounds good. And by good i mean big smile, that little chill good.
I liked Sawhney's music, i have only heard the CD "Broken Skin" (afew yrs back). I would says its the world fusion type, he is one of those guys that are hard to categorise (which is cool). As multilayered as you can get.
Township sessions should definitely be interesting, looking forward to it.
You can pre-order on Amazon, link The release date is Oct 18th.

if you liked Nitin Sawhney you might like the whole genre of ambient chillout.. epitomised by the 'Buddha Bar' collection of albums.. look out for Karunesh, Shpongle and Mescaline.
