Electric Cowbell ec011 Sway Machinery Gawad Teriamou
Following their critically acclaimed debut Hidden Melodies Revealed, the Sway Machinery accepted an invitation to travel to Timbuktu and perform in Mali’s world-renowned Festival of the Desert. In Mali they found inspiration in the form of Khaira Arby, a legendary Malian singer, and out of their epic journey the tracks on this record were born. Colin Stetson (Tom Waits, Arcade Fire, TV on the Radio, Feist, Bon Iver) brings the baritone sax to this big mix making the perfect counterpoint to Khaira’s impassioned wailing.
