Don Cherry ‎– Om Shanti Om

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


“It was recorded in 1976 by the Italian public broadcasting television (RAI), with a limited version of the Organic Music Society, with Cherry on vocals, trumpet and percussion, Nana Vasconcelos on percussion, Italian guitarist Gian Pierro Pramaggiore and Moki Cherry on tanpura. The music consists of slow vocal chants, incantations to be sung collectively, as part of spiritual and ecstatic rituals.

One piece is a berimbau solo by Vasconcelos, two other tracks just hand-clapping and singing. It is all very friendly and sweet, with no real moments of surprise and no sense of artistic commitment, and as such it’s more like listening to a group of friends having fun.” – Stef Gijssels/The Free Jazz Collective .
