Yapé - "Intimo"
(Private Release Sweden 2006)
From Aural Innovations #34 (August 2006)
Yapé is a sort of side project of Johan and Josué from First Band From Outer Space. It was recorded as part of a musical training program that Johan is in. He has produced, mixed, engineered and played all the bass on this CD. As for the music, it is a very interesting mix of South American flute music mixed with guitar, drums and bass. There is a lot of improvisation here as the band develops their sound. The songs are a mixture of traditional Peruvian tracks and originals, but all done with their own flavor. A very enjoyable CD.
