Dub Step, Hindustani Ragas and Nyabinghi Dub Poetry...
In 1987 Wadada continued to defy all musical terms of reference by creating a new hybrid of Christian and Hindu mysticism layered with alchemy!
'Seven' combines Gabriel Faure's Requiem mass with early rumblings of Dub Step, Hindustani Ragas and Nyabinghi Dub Poetry... a unique and historic album.
Recorded at the legendary Sawmill Studio in Cornwall and the Gayan Uttejak Studio in Budapest. The conceptual story line Features an impressive cast on the Arqa stage with John Cooper-Clarke as Ezekiel; Professor Stanley Unwin as Erasmus; Helen Watson as the Maid of Orleans; Sanyogita Kumari and Sarah Wildwitch as the Celtic sisters of Wyrd and Kadir Durvesh as Kali the destroyer. The effect is both fascinating and impressive.
