Sven Kacirek. The Kenya Encores

Pingipung - PP54

Five years ago Sven Kacireks released his legendary album “The Kenya Sessions” on Pingipung. The drummer's collaboration with musicians from Kenya connected electronic, instrumental and field recordings in a unique manner and received kudos from various scenes between techno and world music. For the fifth anniversary Kacirek delivers two more songs with previously unreleased material: The Kenya Encores.

“Siguera” on the A-side is a beautiful gem featuring the voice of the 80-year-old singer Ogoya Nengo. The song has been recorded in Rangala Village at the Viktoria Lake, the exact location where Kacirek had recorded her contributions to the original Kenya Sessions. In the course of her collaboration with Kacirek, Ogoya Nengo has established an international career herself and released two solo albums. The voice on “Siguera” originates from recordings for her first album which was released on the English label Honest Jon's. It has been produced by Sven Kacirek and Stefan Schneider (To Rococo Rot).

The B-side, “Gonda”, is built upon a recording which Kacirek had made in the process of the “Kenya Sessions” five years ago. It was meant to be a part of the album but has found its final shape only now.

The original field recording for “Gonda” is also included in the digital release of this single. It elucidates Sven Kacirek's musical approach which he has developed over the past years. While the field recording for the Kenya Sessions have been cut and edited to merge into the compositions, Kacirek meanwhile chooses not to change or process the source material at all. Similar to a live session he merely adds his own percussions to create a balanced dialogue. This artistic srtategy has also been applied in his last solo album “Songs From Okinawa”.
