It is a habit to assume that it is hard to reach a peak twice. Well, this is not the case when it comes to 'Motherland'. Five years have passed since 'Elements', the debut album from Ariane MacAvoy, AKA Nimba. The album was well accepted in the world, and brought her one step forward to the recognition of connoisseurs of African and World Beat Music. 'Motherland' is the fruitful result of original ideas and time that Ariane had spent with the coastal tribes of Guinea and the Baga people of West Africa. This album is a sensual voyage to the depth of Africa.
When Ariane is not working on her Nimba project, she's busy writing music for The Nommos, her musical collaboration with Goa Gil. Ariane is much respected. Her reputation takes her far and close to remote tribes and obscured teachers in West Africa, where mentally it's like a second home to her.
David Bowie once said: "The future belongs to those who can hear it coming…" We wonder, was it after he listened to Nimba's first album?
We feel that 'Motherland' is a timeless masterpiece…... It Began in Africa …..!!
