People's Colony No.1 brings together the Transglobal Underground off-shoot of Count Dubulah and Neil Sparkes with Rizwan and Muazzam, the two Qawwali-singing great grand-nephews of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. At WOMAD, Rizwan and Muazzam have already joined forces with Fun-Da-Mental but perhaps that spectacular collision was deemed too inflammatory to record. This album's guests include jazz trumpeter/flugelhornist Harry Beckett and bassist Jah Wobble, dropping some deep dub-lines in to three numbers. The TOS keep things fairly simple, constructing steady beats and slumbering bass pulses, sculpting moody electro-textures, making sure that the Qawwalis merge organically, retaining the qualities that define their sound. The vocals still ascend to the expected heights, the lead duo bolstered by their five ensemble singers, two harmoniums and tabla. The only concession that the Rizwan-Muazzam brothers made was to observe a stricter click-track beat, instead of flying off into less constrained time-keeping realms. The track sequence is expertly arranged, following a graceful curve towards spacious, silvery acoustics, then reintroducing a heavier pulse with Wobble's shuddering presence on "Garden Of Perfume" and "Love Moves The Sun" leading the second half's bass-quake assault. --Martin Longley
one of those fusions that manage to lose the best of both worlds.
Although there are a couple of good tracks where the different worlds meet rather than collide.
Coke studio Paakistan has done this very well under the direction of Rohail Hyatt.
