LANGLEY SCHOOLS MUSIC PROJECT - INNOCENCE AND DESPAIR (CD)


"The Langley Schools Music Project is a 60-voice chorus of rural school children from western Canada, untrained but captivated by melodic magic, singing tunes by the Beach Boys, Paul McCartney, David Bowie, The Bay City Rollers, and others. The students accompany themselves with the shimmering gamelan chimes of Orff percussion, and elemental rock trimmings... BarNone will distribute this CD in the US, but the Basta release contains 2 bonus tracks not included on the BarNone version." (label info) "The backing arrangement is astounding. Coupled with the earnest if lugubrious vocal performance you have a piece of art that I couldn't have conceived of, even with half of Colombia's finest export products in me." (David Bowie on the Langley students' rendition of "Space Oddity")
