KOLACKI, RAFAL - Hijra. Noise from the Jungle

Format: CD
Label & Cat.Number: Zoharum ZOHAR 120
Release Year: 2016
Note: field recordings made December 2015 at the "famous" refugee camp called "The Jungle" in Calais, France, where 1000s of immigrants lived in tents: this captures the voices, speeches and especially musical vocalizations and singings of the refugees, coming from various cultures and regions of the world, so that this sounds rather like a recording from an ethnologist made far away from Europe... a very special, political release by RAFAL KOLACKI, showing the dignity and beauty of these lost people..
Price (incl. 19% VAT): €12.00

More Info

"The new album by Rafał Kołacki entitled Hijra. Noise from the Jungle contains field recordings made during a trip to the temporary refugee camp called The Jungle in Calais, France. There lives about 4 000 immigrants where on a relatively small area various nations coexist creating an eclectic, unique sound culture. The album is a recording of music events, it is a kind of a subjective archive of an ethnomusical trip . Above all, it is full of emotions and feelings of people for whom creating art, music is very often the only form of recovering from homesickness.
The album is released in a 3-panel ecopak in a strictly limited edition of 300 copies. The cover is designed by Mirt (rozpad.com). It is mastered by Marcin Dymiter." [label info]
