Monday’s Long Song

Not long after writing Friday’s post which featured Jah Wobble and Youth a further Youth excursion appeared on my internet. This is a long dub remix of an Australian singer and songwriter, Manika Kaur, whose Punjabi Sikh heritage has led her into making devotional music. Her 2015 album was produced by Talvin Singh and she’s worked with Scottish folkie James Yorkston. On this one Youth extends the original track into a 2020 ambient dub tour de force, a journey in which, to quote Martin ‘Youth’ Glover himself, ‘to build invisible bridges between ancient tradition and the modern world’. Eternal bliss indeed.
