Playing tracks by
Art Ensemble Of Chicago, Alice Coltrane, Albert Ayler, unknown Malaysian, Gamelan Gong and more.
Musical accompaniment to last month's excellent Spirits Rejoice feature in Wire magazine - 22 pages of ace pieces covering music through religion and spirituality.
This monster five hour, 68-track Solstice offering covers a lot of the music written about in this issue of Wire, but also a lot of other religious and spiritual music from my shelves.
Tune in to hear crackpot preachers, Tibetan monks, Shamanic throat singers, spiritual jazz, mantras, Pagan ramblings, giddy gospel, Hare Krishna, African church choirs, traditional Islamic, gospel house, five percent theologists, early 1900s Jewish, Animist ceremony, drones, meditations, and, well, basically all the faiths under one roof.
Happy Solstice!! xx
