Didier Malherbe and Loy Ehrlich: Hadouk

By

Sign in to view read count
Didier Malherbe and Loy Ehrlich's Hadouk is a CD that should have appeal for those into the "world music" scene. Malherbe and Ehrlich employ a wide range of wind and percussion instruments, plus occasional stringed instruments, from eastern Europe and Africa in an engaging set of earthy yet intricate tunes. There's little jazz here, in the traditional sense, but the program abounds with interesting rhythms and light improvization on each of the tunes' basic motifs, many of which are quite catchy and memorable. (Zebra Acoustic ZA 44409)

Tracks:Hadouk; Vol De Nuit; Dame Des Sables; Loukoumotive; Bal Des Oiseaux; Effarvatte; Montaulieu; Callibistri; Marsyas; Caspienne Blues. (45:35)

Personnel: Didier Malherbe: doudouk, ocarinas, bamboo clarinet, bamboo flute, Ukrainian double recorder, soprano saxophone, Jew's harp, wood drum, cymbals, zeff; Loy Ehrlich: hajouj, aouicha, bolong, kora, sanza-m'bira, ukulele, tablas, djembe, keyboards.
