Yoshida Brothers: III

III

Yoshida Brothers
03/21/2006

The charismatic duo's fusion of the ancestral and the avant-garde has won global renown, and their East-meets-West vision innovates further with the new album III.  Stand-outs include "Erghen Diado," written by famed world musicologist Marcel Cellier and robustly arranged with drums, bass and strings, and a hypnotic take on Brian Eno's "By This River," the only song featuring vocals (from Remy Zero's Cinjun Tate).  Many other acclaimed guest players add to the texture of the album's twelve tracks, and the Yoshida Brothers also work magic completely on their own with a spare and beautiful version of John & Yoko's "Oh My Love."
