LP version. Angèle David-Guillou is best-known for a brace of critically-acclaimed electro-acoustic dream-pop albums under the alias Klima. She is also known for her signature contributions to cult Anglo-French ensemble Piano Magic and for cameos on albums by the likes of The Go! Team and Peter Astor. Angèle's debut album under her given name is a largely instrumental work, predominantly consisting of melodically opulent, emotionally-compelling compositions for the grand piano. Inspired by the direct, elemental melodies of French folk and the flamboyant arrangements of European and Latin American Baroque music, Kourouma is hallmarked by a purity of expression. There are other influences at play on Kourouma: the clear, mellifluous lines of Carl Orff and Gunild Keetman's Schulwerk (Music for Children) and the intertwining counterpoints and percussive patter of Moondog are consistent touchstones.
