about

'Jangala' is an expedition, a safari, if you will (of course, no animals were harmed in the making of this recording), and was a completely improvised, single pass performance with no overdubs and only slight editing for shape and length, creating spontaneous compositions from intuitive, empathetic and dynamic interactions between four musicians, most of whom have a long personal and musical history.

The music created seemed to take on a quality and essence of movements, both big and small, quick and slight, deliberate and halted. Not utilizing any indigenous traditional instrumentation, e'fessioux managed to conjure images of wildlife in a far away place at a far away time while not even thinking about it in this performance. What emerged could be considered a gift to the four fellas from a place deep within.
