These are just preview samples. You need a valid account and be logged in to hear the full tracks


World music was , in one sense , born of fusion, of filtration with western musical idioms and studio technology. Tradition and modernity still define the tension which lends the best global sounds their ability to mesmerise audiences while maintaining links with rooted local styles . Kabul-Workshop is described by founders Francesco Russo and Khaled Arman ( classically trained musicians from Italy and Afghanistan respectively) as an "electro World collective". The music on Trigana is true fusion that refuses clichés, and is neither simply exotic nor mixed to fit occidental rhythmic expectations. Instead it is traditional Indo-Afghan music transformed into current Indo-Afghan via electronica, experimentation and jazz improvisation.“
