Albert Kuvezin & Yat Kha - Poets & Lighthouses (CD)
Release Date: 01/01/16
Brand new acoustic album from Yat Kha's Albert Kuvezin, recorded on the remote Scottish island of Jura, most famous for it's whisky and as the home of George Orwell when he wrote 1984. These 12 astonishing tracks feature contributions from multi-instrumentalist Giles Perring, bassist Simon Edwards, string & fret maverick Lu Edmonds plus... The album includes songs in Tuvan and Russian and a number of English translations of Japanese poetry by Amano, Kamimura and Yamamoto, in whose work Albert immersed himself during his time on Jura. While the new album has emerged as a completely acoustic project, don't imagine for a second that this approach has in any way watered down Kuvezin's passion and power. The album will completely redefine and revise your notions of that remarkable beast that has been Albert Kuvezin's take on rock energy for the last 15 years. The band is blistering, sensual, atmospheric and funky, while Albert mutters, soars, intones and enchants like the true shamanic soul that he is.
