“Semilla” is a collaborative album by multi-instrumentalist Pachakuti and producer young.vishnu. Pachakuti is a classical trained saxophonist and pianist with strong leanings towards jazz and latin music. young.vishnu is a beatmaker, arranger, sampleologist and the founder of the Nima Composition Archive. They both met briefly five years ago in Hildesheim and became friends on a road trip to the bask country. Pachakuti and young.vishnu formed a nine-piece band called the Soularkestra which became the nucleus of their new project. With “Semilla” the duo is dipping deep into hip-hop, jazz, latin, funk and soul with strong messages about politics, identity, globalization and neocolonialism.
Semilla means seed, means birth,
means life, means opportunity.
Opportunity of roots, of growth,
of creativity, of expression.
Expression of the sacred,
of abundance, of eternity.
Eternity of seeds, of flowers,
of fruit, of death, of rebirth.
Rebirth of lineages, of purpose,
of knowledge, of truth.
young.vishnu is still living in Hildesheim. Pachakuti moved to Berlin a couple of years ago and is also part of the Douniah & High John live band.
For fans of Sun Ra, Madlib, Quantic and Poets of Rhythm.
The “Semilla” LP is limited to 300copies.
