The Kenya Sessions CD, Import
Pingipung presents „The Kenya Sessions“ - an enchanting cooperative mission featuring Sven Kacirek, our experimental drummer and electronic producer, and musicians from Kenya. "The Kenya Sessions" is the result of Sven's extended visit to the country with live and fieldrec sessions which he later processed in his studio in Hamburg. Sven Kacirek plays with local Kenyan stars such as 80 year-old female vocalist Ogoya Nengo, or with Joseph Oganga, who delivers amazing patterns with his „Nyatiti“, a traditional string instrument. It's sometimes difficult to tell the parts recorded in Kenya from those overdubbed by Sven Kacirek himself. His own compilation of Marimba, Bassdrums and brush patterns forms a musical thread that he weaves skillfully into the live sessions. At times joyfully straight (Arsenal Aluny Vilage) at times mellow and melancholy (Mariae, Paperflowers). Sven Kacirek and some of the Kenyan musicians will bring this fantastic material on international stages in early 2011. The Linernotes by Goetz Steeger illustrate the detailed recording process of this record. „The Kenya Sessions“ is Pingipung's second album by Sven Kacirek who has a background as virtuoso jazz drummer.
