12" Black Vinyl.

A pan-African All-Star band merging two cultures. Desert blues man Alhousseini Anivolla meets Ethio-jazz guitarist Girum Mezmur. Their album ”Afropentatonism” features repetitive grooves, hypnotic jams and raw guitar sounds.


Five notes per octave are all you ever need. The pentatonic scale is the foundation for almost every other one. Some call it the world's oldest scale, originating in ancient Mesopotamia circa 3000 BC, spreading east up to India, China and Japan and west to the old American nations of the Andes and the Pacific NorthEast. A scale that became essential for the creation of blues, jazz, country and rock music.
