[ Soundway / LP ]
Release Date: Friday 18 October 2019
Future Afro-Latin jazz house from Italian master percussionist, multi-instrumentalist and composer Gabriele Poso. The entirely self-produced album features guest vocalists Nailah Porter, Nina Rodriguez, Quetzal Guerrero & Sofia Rollo.
On 'Batik', Poso further develops and matures his sound - exploring his extensive roots in Afro-Cuban percussion, while delving into the realms of jazz and soulful house.
With mixing by renowned Spanish DJ and producer Kiko Navarro, the lead single "Africa Linda" is an up tempo live take on Latin house, featuring American-born soul singer Quetzal Guerrero on vocals.
Much of the album features Poso on not only vocals but many of the instruments - including percussion, guitar and kalimba. A true multi-instrumentalist, Poso found an affinity for percussion at a young age, studying in Puerto Rico and Cuba.
