Sha's Banryu - 030

It's been a while since the last dose of ritual groove music at Doklands, so here are Sha's Banryu to fix things. Sha is a Swiss reed player, and his group Banryu make sounds not a million miles away from the zen funk of his contemporaries Nik Bärtsch and Don Li. With Sha though, there's far less emphasis on the minimalist sparseness that often dominates their music.

030 comes from the 2008 album Chess Boxing vol. 1. It starts quietly and ends in shadow, but in between it pursues some of the most monstrously awkward funk grooves you'll ever hear. Bars of music alternate between 7/8 and 10/8 and if you're not careful you'll end up breaking your ankles. A rich pudding of experimental jazz for you to enjoy.
