Vasco Martins ‎- Universo Da Ilha - Canela En Surco (EU) LP Reissue

26.43 EUR
Originally conceived as a book of 6 poems that developed into a record released independently, Universo da Ilha sits at the cross-section of many different genres. Connecting contemporary New Age and Ambient Minimalist movements with traditional West African and Cape Verdean elements from the past (griot voices, djembe rhythms, melancholic morna), Vasco constructed his own "universe" where, in spite of the isolation of the island at the time, he trascended barriers and created a global record that was ahead of its time.
