JLP Like fine blue cheese, the pungent, exotic and amazing flavor/aroma of “Ceder” can be best appreciated after repeated tastings. Perfect deep listening for solitary and creative moments, spiced by instruments such as the umrhubre, budongo, and Shipibo flute, this multidimensional, slightly challenging music is a standout that should not be missed. (On 12 March 2020, I had the good fortune of watching Cara perform live with the Improvisers Exchange Ensemble at the University of Illinois U -C. Favorite track: When we made a space inside each other.

Twistedsoul Expect traditional South African music, soothing classical, and some jazz experimentation as well! Highly recommended. Favorite track: Unpan un sol.

about

With the follow up to her staggering psychedelic jazz debut, 'Things That Grow', we are delighted to see Cara Stacey's return to Kit Records. Here she teams up with Peruvian flautist Camilo Ángeles, pushing further into the liminal space between classical, jazz and traditional South African music.

Recorded live over a day in Cape Town, 'Ceder' presents a narrative in turns soothing, shrill, euphoric, dissonant, serene - unfurling like a labyrinthine soundtrack to some foreign planet; a landscape sparse and desolate, yet somehow teeming with life.

Recommended if you like the hauntingly isolated Western soundtracks of Bruce Langhorne, Keith Jarrett's serpentine piano playing or the fantastical terrains of Rashad Becker.
