The fourth full length Zea album and the first one on Makkum Records. A full new collection of Zea’s wildly varying songs. Songs that hold no stock in normality or convention and while the ingredients can come from all different corners of the world and from all sorts of styles, the listener will hear this unique form of a song. Joyfully obstinate, energetic and catchy.
“Song For Electricity” is based on the Ethiopian song “Bogiye” (Abonesh Adenew) and the song “Bourgeois Blues” is based on the original Leadbelly song, the lyrics are from a version by The Fall, called “Bourgeois Town”. “The Beginning” is spoken by an old neighbour of Ken Carbonu, the Ghanian musician Zea recorded and played with in Accra, Ghana in 2008. The title “Staande Ben Ik vergeten Wat Ik Dacht Toen Ik Lag” is inspired by a poem of Flemish poet Eddy van Vliet, called “Staande”.
