Folk, chant, drone, kirtan, spiritual, tribal, world fusion from Richmond based Lobo Marino. "City Of Light" is named after the city Varanasi, in India. Laney and Jamison went to Varansi and volunteered at a music and arts school there (all the proceed from this album's sales goes to that school, a very worthwhile endeavour. The info to do so is on their bandcamp page). As far as the music itself, stellar as is the case with their last release "Kite Festival" which ended up on my year end list. Its a really good blend of west and east influences. The drone aspect doesn't make tracks stand out, rather when consumed as a whole a singular, pretty amazing, sonic experience. Thanks to Laney and Jameson for the download!
