Dream Weapons present: THE HIGH PRIESTESS C90

https://yadi.sk/d/R6eUjbKd-soarQ

Basically the same theme as my Fourth World-mix. Which means more ethnic/oriental/folk/latin/psych/spiritual jazzfusion-grooves with flutes and percussion aplenty. Good vibes for bad times. The kind of jazzy jams that makes me regret never learning to play an instrument. Four out of the eighteen gems on The High Priestess features female bandleaders. Among them the brilliant Bobbi Humphrey - who also adorns the cover -Mohaha

Dream Weapons present: THE GIRL WHO COLLECTED THE BONES OF THE DEER C60

https://yadi.sk/d/xdHv6nqQJ73TMQ

The full title includes «Macedonian folk songs & dances». Although loving this kind of music dearly I’m certainly not an expert. I think its safe to state that it shares many similarties with Balkan music though. Skillfully composed and rhythmically complex - yet so full of emotion and catchy that you’ll be in tears while humming along to the lively melodies simultaneously. Mostly women singing their hearts out as usual - but also a few male voices and a handful of heavy dance tunes/improvisations. My understanding is that this style of folk with a pop sensibility of sorts was quite popular in 60’s/70’s Eastern Europe - which is the period these songs were recorded. Maybe I’ve unknowingly included some monster-hit(s) here, but it’ll be new to most of you listeners out there anyway.

-Moahaha

Btw: search the full title of the mix and learn about the perversely bizarre Macedonian folk/fairytale that its taken from. Trust me its worth it. Seriously messed up.
