Enrique Rodríguez & The Negra Chiway Band - Fase Liminal
Brand new. Sealed album.
Powerful new spiritual jazz from Chile on Soul Jazz Records! Enrique Rodríguez and the Negra Chiway Band have an instantly powerful and unique sound that is reminiscent of the ensembles of Sun Ra and Horace Tapscott, one that channels the righteous spirits of Alice Coltrane, John Coltrane, Pharoah Sanders, Archie Shepp and McCoy Tyner together with a stunning Latin rhythmical and new consciousness and percussive energy. Added are elements of the Samurai film soundtracks of Akira Kurosawa, Popol Vuh’s musical spirituality, Tibetan Buddhism and over-blowing chants, all combining to give a truly unique new sound. Rodríguez is a composer, percussionist, keyboardist, and producer from Santiago, Chile, whose work shows similarities with the music of new forward-looking jazz artists including Mathew Halsall, Theon Cross, Emma-Jean Thackray and Makaya McCraven. A powerful mix of radical 60s Afro-centric jazz, eastern spirituality and cosmology, and Latin American rhythmical movement. Awesome!
