Laraaji – Kalimba (Ela Orleans version)

It was only last year that London’s All Saints label put American ambient musician and Eno-collaborator Laraaji Nanananda on my musical map with their two compilations and album reissues. Apparently, these have been in such high demand, that there will be another vinyl re-run of those next week. This week, however, the label put out a 12-inch of remixes from those, consisting of new interpretations by Bee Mask, Ela Orleans, Sun Araw and a previously unreleased original. Out now in all good record stores, at Bleep and Spotify!

Oh, and while writing about this, I also came across Chris Hall’s mini-documentary about Laraaji, well worth a watch.
