The holy grail album 'Mkwaju' by acclaimed Japanese percussionist Midori Takada's Mkwaju ensemble. Originally recorded in February and March 1981 and released by Japanese avant-garde label Better Days (home of Ryuichi Sakamato's debut album) Mkwaju is the fruit of the collaboration between Takada's crew and world-famous composer/musical director Joe Hisaishi. He is the man behind most of of Hayao Miyazaki's Studio Ghibli anime soundtracks and over 100 other films scores, including Takeshi Kitano's Sonatine, Hana-Bi, and Kikujiro. 'Mkwaju' is an inventive and riveting take on Eastern and Western minimalist traditions, African rhythms, and early electronica. Drawing from its jazz-rooted polyrhythmic improvisations in the most inventive ways, the album covers a wide spectrum of sounds, from colorful dance floor-ready percussion pieces that stand somewhere between proto-techno and experimental synth-pop, to cinematic ambient landscapes and ethereal drone delicacies. Comes on 140 gram vinyl.

Also available: MKWAJU (CD).
