African and Ambient

Summary

Elizabeth Alker hears new music from Kenya's KMRU, the prolific producer and sound designer whose glistening electronic compositions, full of intimate field recordings, offer a warped window into the sound and texture of his two homes: Nairobi and Berlin. From there, we delve into the rich history of African influence on Western ambient recordings - from Steve Reich's fascination with Ghanaian drumming to the felt connection between techno and tribal traditions.
