The National Fanfare of Kadebostany is the breathtaking outcome of electronic music genius Kadebostan’s encounter with Belorussian acoustic chamber ensemble Rational Diet. Under the spell of their common love for discovering new ways of expression, they decided to create…a new country. Yes, a new country: Kadebostany! Entrusted with the mission of creating culture for this new land, The Fanfare enlisted the help of talented street musicians from neighboring countries to create a unique piece of music, an organically concocted mix of genres, influences and emotions tightly wrapped in an album with no frontiers.
The musical map of Kadebostany reads like a blueprint for nonelectronic techno: hard-hitting yet welcoming like a village feast, cutting-edge yet simple like a long-anticipated hug. Violin, cello, piano, accordion, saxophone, bassoon, guitar, banjo, electronics, and the list goes on, there’s no limit in this country!
Whether it’s ominous and bassy (Fast “King Rashaa” Mercedes, ode to the engine of big German cars in the streets of Kadebostany), sensual (the subtle strings of “Kadebostany Mon Amour”), bonfire inducing (“Turisty Circus” with vocalist Joy Frempong), or blue like a heartbreak (“La Saeta”), the first record to ever come out of Kadebostany always keeps its reassuring warmth, call it Kadebostanian hospitality.
The big hits are here too: “Kazak Rules” is relentless, club certified, and mind-freeing, “Behind the Jajouka” is a dancefloor magnet, and “The Legend of the Tattooed Face Woman” is as epic as its title suggests. These gems are bound to bring a lot of tourism to Ceyzeria, the capital town of Kadebostany.
The National Fanfare of Kadebostany is a project without precedent, multicultural, organic and uniquely eccentric.
