Towards Other Worlds

  • Description Ariya Astrobeat Arkestra are back with their second album 'Towards Other Worlds'. The UK- based 9 piece have built on the success of their debut album, described by BBC Radio 2's Jamie Cullum as one of his 'sounds and albums of 2010'. Afrobeat's inimitable rhythm and language is evident and the band also owes part of their sound to the space jazz pioneers of the 70s and the free jazz trailblazers of the 60s.
    Towards Other Worlds explores this diverse blueprint, taking in driving afro-funk, spiritual jazz, and Mulatu-esque Ethio-jazz. Built around a quote of the Sun-Ra film 'Space Is The Place' the album is split into two halves - the first represents Earth and it's 'sounds of guns, anger, frustration' whilst the second is couched in the cosmos, where 'the vibrations are different', leading to a more progressive, peaceful sound.
