Argile & African Heat
0 Shouts - 8,307 Scrobbles
Argile was formed by flutist Dieter Weberpals who obviously has a fascination with the music of West Africa, South America, India and the Orient. Barry Sangare from Mali provides vocals, N'goni - and his djembe playing is one the best examples I have heard of the instrument being utilized in a more "western" style band. Gert Kilian, on djembes and congas, is also a fine balaphon player. The ensemble is rounded out with Robert Hofmann on guitar/bass and Werner Treiber on traps and vibes.
