Taking in a tantalisingly broad selection of percussion-led
global sounds, new BBE compilation 'The Language Of
Tambores' is the brainchild of rising alt-jazz star
Gabriele Poso. A true multi-instrumentalist, Italian born
Gabriele found a particular affinity for percussion at a
young age, studying in Puerto Rico and Cuba, describing
this fascination as "a real reason to live". His first solo
album 'From The Genuine World' was released on
Osunlade's 'Yoruba Records' in 2008, leading to a longstanding musical relationship between the two artists
which has continued to blossom since. His latest artist
album 'Invocation' is entirely played, sung and produced
by Gabriele himself and his incredible live shows are
swiftly raising his international profile one performance at
a time.
An artist with a strong musical and spiritual vision,
Gabriele's appreciation for the use of drumming as a
means to communicate led to the concept behind 'The
Language Of Tambores'. This expertly curated
collection of music summons up the excitement Poso must
have felt when he began immersing himself in the study
of percussion. Ancestral, evocative and visceral, this
collection of tracks spans several genres and continents,
tied together with that ancient, visceral connection we all
share with the magical, unspoken language of the drum.
Key Selling Points:
- 'The Languages Of Tambores' features many of the world's
finest percussionists, presenting essential cuts which were
previously unavailable on vinyl.
- This talented multi-instrumentalist has appeared on records
by DJ Jazzy Jeff, Louie Vega and Osunlade among many
- His second solo album "Roots Of Soul" was awarded 'Best
Jazz Independent Production' in 2012.
- Now touring, Gabriele's unique live sets showcase his
multi-instrumental and vocal talents perfectly, gaining a
plaudits and new fans across the globe. Available from 27.01.2017
