Been a while since I hauled out the Kashtin albums. Can’t for the life of me recall how I first heard of them. Wouldn’t be surprised if it was on WOJB, some late night drive. Plugged some in on a drive with the family yesterday and enjoyed the rediscovery. We were listening to the Innu album. The “Overture” and “Nikanish” are a good start, and I enjoy the power of “Harricana,” but for late night mopey writing sessions, it’s tough to beat “Ishkuess.”
There’s a video of “Ishkuess” here, although I couldn’t get it to load reliably.
I also have Akua Tuta.
