On our fourth mix for 20ft Radio, Moahaha and myself traveled the corners of the world in search for voices of truth.
Our journey took us deep into the ancient temples of Japan and their buddhist monks hypnotic prayers, way up to the frosty north for a visit among the Sami on the planes of the Russian tundra, onwards to the warmth of Persian nights sprinkled with soulful serenades, then both to Mongolia and The Altai Republic for an introspective voyage trough deep rumbling tones of throat singing, a detour to the Swedish sea side with their crisp local folk tunes, a short stop in the humid nights of Haiti and its haunting Vodou chants, venturing to USA exploring both a spiritual meditation on the devil and an intimate pop session of heartbreaking harmonies on teenage love and loss before we went all the way to a Senegalese monastery and their ecstatic monks.
These and many more people and places are to be found on Mouth of Truth, a sombre mix devoted on the beauty of song with the occasional sparse instrumental backing, showcasing spirituals, folk, choral, a cappella and sacred songs from all over the planet.
