SAICOBAB – SAB SE PURANI BAB (2LP+MP3)

Image: 1611833 SAICOBAB is the Japanese quartet comprised of acclaimed vocalist
YoshimiO (Boredoms, OOIOO), Yoshida Daikiti (sitar), Akita Goldman
(bass), and acclaimed in Japan Motoyuki “Hama” Hamamoto (percussion,
gamelan). SAICOBAB masterfully blend traditional Indian music with
melodies and unexpected rhythms using unorthodox instrumentation to
create utterly distinct modern ragas.
On their debut album SAB SE PURANI BAB, YoshimiO’s leaping, animated,
effected vocal melodies dance ?uidly through Daikiti’s intricate sitar
patterns. The entrancing synergy of Goldman and Hama’s rhythmic pulse
drives and shapes the aptly named SAICOBAB’s sound to one that is at once
rooted in ancient tradition, and wholly new.
SAICO means “the most ancient”, and “BAB” stands for “baby” in Japanese.
SAB SE PURANI means “the most ancient baby girl” in Hindi. The
connections made are a re?ection of the deep connections made musically
between traditional Indian and Japanese music and spiritual practices.
