Electric Dish - MIX THREE - Xylophone Special Wed, 2019-06-19 21:44

This mix is inspired by my (Sophie Darling) learning the Chopi Timbila from Mozambique – a large wooden xylophone, played in orchestras – for the last two years. It all climaxed in an exam toward my degree, which was a great success.
I’ve deeply loved learning this beautiful instrument, and the xylophone techniques in general.

I decided to make a mix of various tracks featuring xylophones. At first I realised I kept allowing steel pans and a clave to pass as a xylophone – then I thought, NO! The xylophones good enough to have an ENTIRE mix dedicated to it’s fine features.

I hope you enjoy.

P.S This is an ode to Robbie, many thanks, and the timbila gang \m/
