This is a track about the desperate humanitarian situation in Afghanistan. It features a gritty bass riff by 'James Eller', funky retro live drums, and the amazing guest vocals of 'glasscat'. My thanks to James Eller and 'glasscat' for their contributions. This aims to highlight the humanitarian crisis unfolding in Afghanistan with worsening famine in the region.
This was inspired by a DJ Food track called 'Dark Lady'. The bass riff they used was a sample from 'Open Your Eyes' by Flora Purim featuring Alphonso Johnson on bass. Alphonso's bass riff is awesome, and so I re-interpreted that kind of vibe with a similar bass motif and the live drum groove. My friend James Eller played the bass riff and I built the track around that riff.
Many thanks to James Eller for his amazing bass playing :-) www.jameseller.com
The song is about Women’s Rights, and how their underlying right to freedom of choice and freedom of speech is severely compromised by religious fundamentalism and bigoted attitudes.
It Features the vocals of my good friend Tammy Roylance. I wrote the song the day the Taliban walked back into Kabul.
After 20 years of steady progressive development in Afghanistan, women's rights have taken a terrifying step backwards.
