To call this a crossover album, though, would be to misrepresent it; this is no clever synthesis of two disparate traditions. It's difficult Cantate 147 - Lambarena - Bach To Africa characterize the relationship between the two musical cultures. The music of Bach and the musical traditions of Gabon coexist without giving up their own integrity, and interact with varying degrees of obvious connection.
The CD features classically trained European musicians, 10 ensembles from Gabon, and several Argentinean musicians, who worked together in the studio many months to create the Aire & Calder - Ultrasound - Everything Picture. The most successful tracks mysteriously capture the underlying musical impulse common to the two traditions, and the result opens up new meanings, and sounds natural and organic.
For example, it's astonishing, on track 2, how beautifully a traditional song from Gabon dovetails and overlaps with "Lasset uns den nicht Zerteilen," from the St.
John Passion, and how they complement each other in their exuberant affirmation of life. On track 6, the simultaneous performance of a ritual that includes a clapping pattern and hooting vocalizations and a chorus from the St.
John Passion is breathtaking. Not all the efforts are equally successful; the chant at the end of the Agnus Dei from the B minor Mass simply sounds tacked on. But when the mix works, as it usually does, the effect is revelatory, transformative. The sound is intensely clean and beautifully differentiated, highlighting the wonderful strangeness Cantate 147 - Lambarena - Bach To Africa the mixing of traditions.
