The rules are simple: three looping stations and three vocalists in a totally improvised environment. The project Trioskyzophony was born in april of 2014 during the Cultures Urbaines Festival of St-Laurent du Maroni (Guyane, France). These two tracks are excerpts from the trio’s early recordings, captured live in Bobigny by the first collective line-up, comprising D’ de Kabal (Kabal, Spoke Orchestra), Ali M’Baye alias Blade Mc (Diaspora Rockers) and Raphaël Otchakowski (ex-Plebeian Grandstand, Matisse …). Still enchanted by their experience at the frontier of the amazonian jungle, the trio deliver a strong performance, where urban beat-making, ethnic roaming and incantations are looped until they slowly transform your room in a dense and mystical jungle. Shamanic and hypnotizing.
