Bandius Companion follows the footsteps of the previous album "Selected Grooves" (2017, Giant Pulse Records), with a new formation of six elements and more energetic sounds.
Six new songs original in the mixture of timbres, the style of the compositions and the vast musical references.
The captivating and melodic grooves open directly on the urgent rhythms of drums and bass while paying homage to the analog Africa and the soundtracks of Italian ‘70s detective stories in The Boa Azul Great Escape and Afrobeat 2, where distorted organs and accordions intertwine in a psychedelic mantra echoed in unison by the flute and the saxophone.
The music evokes cinematic atmospheres with the obstinate and decisive rhythm of So Far, The Desert, while the elegant jazz lounge of Age Of Golden Rain is marked by more dramatic and epic tones without losing vitality in the groove. The interpretations, recorded live, are inspired and full of emotion (La Palma City Groove), until imploding in walls of electro-acoustic sound on odd times (Haram).
