“A complex, emotive and very full offering of great warmth and depth.”

“Superb work – I can hear the care and skill in every bar.”

Mama Dance, Africa’s premier production music library, present the second album in the “Space and Story” series, entitled “Wide Horizons”.
Featuring a wide array of exotic and African instruments (including for example the karimba/kalimba, valiha and cittern), much of the music is a synthesis of the deeply African and the universally cinematic. Worth hearing are the impressively original vocals of collaborator Ntutu Nyiki, cinematic vocalisation diva.
The 17 original compositions cater for every media application; 30 and 60 second and no-beat or no-vocals versions, and expanded and remixed as pared-down minimal or ambient alternatives.
“Wide Horizons” celebrates and invites expansiveness, appealing to a sense of joyous adventure and awe, while also passing beyond the immediate field of normal vision into the darker, more numinous spaces of the soul.
This collection will appeal to mythmakers and dream weavers, those whose trade is travel, nature or the exotic. It will equally appeal to film directors and creative visionaries who need original and compelling World/African soundtracks to support the tales they are telling … “Wide Horizons” creates the sublime spaces that powerful stories demand.
