Includes a bonus Suns of Arqa live DVD featuring the full magnificent sound of Suns of Arqa.
An album of Leonard Cohen cover songs. Seems unlikely if not a little bizarre from the legendary World Music group Suns of Arqa, who only last year saw album releases on Interchill and Dragonfly. But as the title reveals 'Stranger Music' is no ordinary album. It effortlessly takes the lyrical mastery of Leonard Cohen and creates a cohesive amalgamation with the rhythms of the late Bryn Jones aka Muslim Gauze.
The vocals of 'Angel Eye' are unique interpretations of Leonard Cohens most profound poetic verse and superlative songs. This is pure eclectic genius from Michael Wadada, the Manchester Underground music creator of Suns of Arqa, who continues to have a seminal influence on the whole World Dub Dance AmbientTrance music scene.
'Stranger Music' features a whole host of artistic contributions from the best creative innovators and musicians around.
