Notes & Reviews:

This reissue of the very first concept album released by Hughes de Courson, entitled 'Lambarena: Bach to Africa', perfectly exemplifies the composer's unique fusion of classical European music with traditional music from around the world. This album, an homage to Albert Schweitzer, fuses the music of Bach with the native harmonies and rhythms of Africa. The end result is a fascinating fabric of sound woven together from Gabonese chant voices and the classical melodies of Bach, permeated throughout by the underlying rhythms of the African forest.

Notes & Reviews:

Includes mayingo / fugue on mayingo by various composers.
