Like the musical equivalent of a Henri Rousseau painting, these six tropical ditties by Jascha Hagen and Jan Soutchek - aka JAJA - lure listeners into a tropical jungle of psychedelic sounds, roaming through a damp and dreamy swamp down to labyrinthine rivers, then up again to the mystical heights of the Andes.
JAJA weave a wild cosmos of natural sounds together with their dance floor-ready bass and astral synthesizers. A fiesta of indigenous bird and insect noises arrives around vocals and even choirs, accompanied by the pounding of organic percussion. Flute and guitar samples from long-forgotten South American folk songs paint a melancholy rainbow over the whole tropical hallucination. Makumba!
