"Composer, guitarist and producer Chris Morphitis releases his debut album through British Label Village Green. Recorded at his suburban garden shed, the album merges Morphitis's love of Zimbabwean and Greek music with his intuitive passion for experimentalism. Known for performing with and producing bands that reworks traditional folk music including MOBO nominated "Best African Act" The Owiny Sigoma Band (2011) and Greek Psyche band Mavrika (2012). Commencing with a mixture of improvised and pre-written material, Morphitis built the album up from recorded takes of complete live performances, the idea being to retain any imperfections and sense of spontaneity. With this in mind he also chose to record with a combination of musicians who specialised in improvisation. Composer Gustavo Santaolalla, who pioneered the fusion of his Argentinian roots with rock, soul, African rhythms and Latin American folk, was a big influence on the album."
