John Cratchley Deep from within Man's ancestral home and psyche,this music has fundamental resonances that both delight the senses and reinforce our intrinsic internal rhythms...these sounds feel like they flow through our veins and murmur in our blood.
Music as complex and as simple as breathing, and as necessary.

about

'Things That Grow' is a fluid musical project exploring the sonic possibilities of southern African musical bows within improvisatory contexts. On this album, Cara Stacey performs contemporary compositions and improvisations on the umrhubhe and uhadi bows with Shabaka Hutchings (clarinet, tenor saxophone), Seb Rochford (drums), Ruth Goller (bass), Crewdson (concertronica), and Dan Leavers (synths/production). Combining original compositions by Cara and Shabaka with freely conceived improvisation, this recording aims to stretch the boundaries of bow music in an ensemble and create something entirely new.

Cara is a South African multi-instrumentalist, composer and researcher, based between London, Cape Town, and Mbabane.
