Reissue of very rare French spiritual / political Avant-garde Jazz - Think Brigitte Fontaine meets Alice Coltrane via the Middle East. The soundtrack of a cult play from the “Chêne Noir” Theatre. A spiritual jazz work tinged with poetry and oriental music. A sonorous UFO of which only the 70s had the secret. To be classified between Brigitte Fontaine Marc Moulin’s Placebo and Strata East.
