The first ever reissue and remastering of Jon Hassell & Farafina's prescient, Fourth World masterwork. Propulsive Burkinese rhythms meet revelatory, ambient soundscapes. Co-produced with the legendary studio team of Brian Eno & Daniel Lanois. Composer and trumpeter Jon Hassell has been an elusive, iconic musical figure for more than half a century. He's best known as the pioneer and propagandist of Fourth World music, mixing technology with the tradition and spirituality of non-western cultures to create what he termed the "coffee-colored classical music of the future."
