Reseña de álbum

Fans of vintage roots reggae know the Suns of Arqa as the band that backed up Prince Far I on his excellent live album of 1982. But their usual domain is an unusual fusion of South Asian and Western music that tends to steer clear of the punk and dancehall extremes of the Asian Underground movement in favor of a more contemplative style that comes across as a bit more respectful toward the religious and classical traditions from which it draws. Which is not to say that the Suns of Arqa shy away from laying down a heavy groove. On Cosmic Jugalbandi, the group takes material from five traditional ragas, and each track begins with the flute and/or violin's traditional arrhythmic exposition of the raga's scale.

It's an unusual and highly effective approach, and one that doesn't vary much from track to track, creating a consistent but never boring listening experience. The album's final track, however, finishes off the program with an aggressively dub-inflected mix by Youth. A must for fans of the Asian Underground scene, modern bhangra, jungle, or experimental dub.
