Two CD collection. Pioneering African artist, founder of Offering Recordings and father of Ancestral Soul, Boddhi Satva returns to BBE with retrospective double album 18, charting nearly two decades of groundbreaking music production. Taking in over 30 musical highlights from his career so far, 18 turns up hidden gems and reflects on classics, life-changing collaborations and solo successes. Satva's creative expansion and personal journey are traced across this intricate, self-reflective collection. Over the course of 18, we can hear the growth and evolution of Satva's 'Ancestral Soul'. "Before being an actual sound," Says Boddhi "it's is a mind-set. I always approach my music with the intention of uplifting and healing as many souls I can. Now sound-wise I've always wanted my musical envelope to be open creatively but always keep it's African-ness, no matter the diversity of the sound. It is important for me to add that though I'm musically very open, I believe that what gives Ancestral Soul it's special energy is the fact that it's anchored by strong roots."
