Catalog no.: WRWTFWW0000026

Item ID: 461613

The official reissue of legendary album 'KI-Motion' by Japanese percussionist Midori Takada's MKWAJU ensemble, sourced from the original masters. A highly creative and transcendental fusion of marimba, vibraphone, bamboo percussion and synthesizers, 'KI-Motion' was recorded in 1981 and captures the birth of Midori Takada's exploration of minimalism, African rhythmic tradition, and ambient music. The album takes its conceptual inspiration from the tamarind (mkwaju in Swahili), a drought resistant tree notably used to craft some of the first mallets and marimbas but also known for its culinary and medical uses, an essential symbol of life and identity for the Central African grasslands. Drawing from the region's culture and music as well as the crucial notion that rhythms represent the very fabric of life, Midori Takada leads her ensemble into environmental heaven to create one of the highlights of her recording career and an absolute must-have from the golden age of Japanese ambient.

Also available: KI-MOTION (LP).
