Description

Tramo on CD

A south - south collaboration. Experts on Tanzanian traditions from Bagamoyo, meet with modern musicians from the city Dar Es Salaam: There has been a great many "north-south" collaborations in the history of world music, but all too often European and American musicans have been using the music from the South as exotic spice in their too dull musical dishes. Not so with the Tramo project, which is a south - south collaboration where teachers from Bagamoyo College of Arts, experts on Tanzanian traditions, meet with modern musicians from the city. With modern dance musicians from Dar Es Salaam, the traditional musicans and singers create a new and hitherto unheard musical fusion. Traditional ngoma dances and music blend with electric instruments and urban attitudes to a music that resembles nothing you have heard before. Curiosity! The urge to explore Creating new combinations Making the hitherto unheard-of, heard: Creativity & chords & colorful combinations Deep tradition: Drums sounding and pots grinding Urban instruments stepping lightly over old dance steps Blending in with the ngomas and the voices Instruments discovered and re-discovered Old and new catching the rhythm and the melodies from each other Creating new soundscapes Children of spotlights and electronics Merging with the bearers of tradition The drums, the dancers, the minstrels of old Finding their footing on stage with the keyboards and guitars Teachers of tradition Stars from city bars Meeting at the crossroads of cultures old and new Creating sparks of rhythms and melodies New music rising like smoke from the fire Heating the drums Igniting and uniting Players and listeners alike.
