ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Ifa y Xango released its debut album ‘Abraham’ in 2012. The album is a ‘stream of music’ – still separate tracks which eventually flow together and tell one story – based on the films of Lars Von Trier and the paintings of Pieter Brueghel and Jeroen Bosch. Ifa y Xango made use of its own invented script and three compositions (by Seppe Gebruers) to structure their improvisations. ‘Abraham’ has recently been selected by the distinguished jazz magazine ‘New York City Jazz Record’ (US), by praising and entitling the album to be one of the ‘Best Debut Releases 2013’. It was considered a big success by the Belgian press as well:

“(…) Ifa y Xango succeeded in composing an album that combines a ceaseless creativity with the required anchoring structure. It's maturity is striking and so is the added witty architectural graph, serving as a visual reconstruction. Trite comments, such as ‘Keep an eye out for them’, do not suffice here, for Ifa y Xango have already delivered a strong statement” (G. Peters, Enola)
