Under Our Sun

by Nango Manchay



Using original recordings from the mountains of Nepal, the deserts of India and the jungles of Australia and Central America, Nango Manchay has learned and incorporated instruments from all corners of the earth to create an album the spans borders and traditional genres.

The result is the expansive album Under Our Sun which comes to Desert Trax on April 5th. From the opening hit of Varanasi Flame to the closing notes of Diambura, the Nango Manchay sound envelops and hypnotizes. The guitarist and sitar player also features on the seminal album Grouch in Dub and his lush string sound finds a home on Desert Dwellers label. The entire album is filled with gorgeous melody at each stop along the cosmic journey. Rich, pulsing midtempo breaks and more intricate downtempo and bass-centric musings are held together by the connective thread of real bowed, plucked and strummed strings.

“Under Our Sun is a tribute to the unification of humanity and the common goals of peace and understanding that is an underlying part of what makes us all human,” he notes “We are all under the same sun, we share this planet together and this album represents many cultures uniting to create music of beauty that reflects the awe and grandeur of nature, our shared home and the depths of our own consciousness.”
