Kusht - West 06:34


We are proud to present the new release Kusht - Vardo.

When Kusht decided to leave Scotland and explore the world he had no idea of all the great wonders that would come to him, Vardo is his Ode to travel and feels it will touch others who have also chosen a life of movement. A Vardo is a Romani Wagon or most commonly knows as a Gypsy Wagon, the opening Edit on the LP is that of an old Gypsy Love song "Ketri Ketri". Making an entrance "West" shows his want to travel to Latin America and spend time with the countless influences from over the pond. We then take an adventure with "Zorio's Blackbird" flying its way to the top of the mountain where we meet the crazy collaboration between Kusht and his father R Gold with this Acoustic Cowbell Onomatopoeia showdown "Twangklang". Finally we retreat into the arms of "Tarzan" who shows us there can be the strongest of love between two strangers.

Kusht takes inspiration from all over the world especially Africa and Latin America, he ties them to the sounds of the cold north and his Celtic roots to create a harmonious fusion of cultures. Vardo is organic and soft yet with some room rumbling moments, this is one to enjoy a hot cup of tea on a cold morning sunrise. ​​​​​​​​​​
