LP version; now deleted on CD. This is the first worldwide release by Argentinian songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Alejandro Franov. Franov is one of the key figures of the alternative folk and world music scene of his country, brought to worldwide critical acclaim by singer/songwriter and actress Juana Molina. Khali -- which is mainly based on three instruments -- the African mbira, the Paraguayan harp arpa and the Indian sitar -- is the result of Franov's studies in African and Arabic music, especially the music of the Shona from Zimbabwe. He carefully combines these unique instruments with percussion, voices and minimal electronics in order to create a comfortably floating stream of world music in the purest sense, hardly relating to any certain country or region.
