Songlines Music Awards 2009 Winner: Cross-Cultural Collaboration

WOMAD's conversation piece this year [2008] occurred at the 11th hour, when Jah Wobble's dazzling, circus-like Chinese Dub Orchestra left us spellbound. As the musicians packed up a guzheng zither, Jew's harp, electric guitar, classical flute and Chinese percussion, Wobble unplugged the bass which had subtly driven the performance. Wobble is one of world music's most intelligently eclectic mavericks. He swapped the Invaders of the Heart for this project, but never abandons his passion for dub-reggae. His basslines - melodic, stomping and dub-echoey - accompany music more Chinese than dub but even on 'L1 Dub' and 'Li', where the boat is pushed closest to Jamaica, Zi Lan Liao's tangy guzheng-picking complements the electric guitar's stark 1960s twang. The two singers with Mongolian and Tibetan backgrounds bring vocal riches without any off-putting shrillness. 'Walking the Horse' and 'Horse Mountain Song' are sung by Gu Ying Ji, evoking the Mongolian plains, and Wang Jingqu's richer voice, on 'Happy Tibetan Girl' is a rivalling high point. In 'Yellow Mountain' (and its dub version), Clive Bell's classical flute paints Chinese landscapes as Wobble and Zi maintain a fugue-like dance around the zither's ice-crisp melodies. Has the wandering bass player found his home? (c) Sue Steward, originally published in the Jan/Feb 2009 issue of Songlines magazine
