Various - polyrhythmic series #1

Om Buschman’s 1988 album Total provides three tracks. The set opens with his “Klang Fängt An” (“Sound Begins”), a fake-ethnographic ambient track full of spare, clattering percussion, tinkling wind chimes, and strummed zither that evokes Laraaji. Similar chimes shimmer amid the bird calls, water sounds, and wordless chants of Total Art of Percussion’s “Wuhan Wuchang,” and Argile’s “Kleine Rosa Wolke” drifts into new-age territory with its placid strings and floating flutes. In a similar vein, Rüdiger Oppermann also contributes a beguiling track entitled “Troubadix In Afrika,” full of dizzying kora runs, rattled gourds, and Indian tabla.
