Globalistics by Global Village Orchestra

The Global Village Orchestra is an eclectic blend of musicians from Senegal, Turkey, China/Uiguria, Germany, Netherlands, Hungary, Moroko and Iran. The cultural blend of sounds embodies a world beat of broad textures. "Yaschlik" is a simple and moody song with varied flavors. "Sequence 2" has an almost spiritual significance. "Blue Wedding" swings into a more jazz oriented fill with native dialect against the instrumentation. The vocals in "Ayerlik" are deeply resonating. The title cut, "Globalistics" is an upbeat, happy tune. Widely using improvisational techniques throughout, the songs allow each artist enough breathing room for self-expression. Embracing a celebration of life, "Globalistics" by the Global Village Orchestra is a colorful cross-cultural sampling of musical compositions.
