The Loa of Music is the first recording project of Milanese composer and musician Roberto Musci inspired by Voodoo Religion; Vever (the magical voodoo paintings) and Loas, the dark and magic spirits. The deep charm of non-Western music has led him to travel for many years across Africa, India and Asia, studying rhythms, scales, performance and interpretation of the most varied traditional and indigenous music, as well he make many field recordings and collected ethnic instruments that would then be combined with synthesizers and electronics in The Loa of Music.
Recorded in 1983 originally had 80 minutes of music but only half was released on original LP. SOAVE pressed for the first time the Complete Recording Session from original tapes of this masterpiece that combines in a natural, spontaneous and unforced manner the sounds of distant and historic cultures, loopped, cut and effected, with avantgarde and mystical approach creating a very personal and inspired innovative musical language.

I first listened to the full project in one sitting late one night, and it was one of the most moving experiences I've ever had with music. I haven't re-listened in full as of yet, but I keep returning to this album and find myself humming along to the tunes over and over. Take care, Caretaker. Ford

A seminal and visionary album that still sounds fresh close to 40 years later... a unique mixture of instruments, influences and styles that really resonates even more in today's post-everything global society. ~ DJ Megasoup aka Selaroda ~
