"... Terry Riley’s conceptual masterpiece gets a charming update ..."
- The Guardian

"... it's got the hypnotic repetition of In C but with African-flavoured instrumentation."
- Exclaim!

Led by young contemporary classical conductor André de Ridder and recorded in Mali in 2013, this is the first African version of Terry Riley's minimalist classic In C. Featuring the cream of new artists from Mali alongside Africa Express stalwarts Damon Albarn, Brian Eno, Jeff Wootton and Nick Zinner, the album marks the 50th anniversary of Riley's piece and was co-produced and mixed by Andi Toma (Mouse on Mars).

"I am overwhelmed and delighted by this CD. I was not quite prepared for such an incredible journey, hearing the soul of Africa in joyous flight ... this ensemble feeds the piece with ancient threads of musical wisdom and humanity ... I could not ask for a greater gift for this daughter's 50th birthday."
- Terry Riley

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
