Bakongo – Momoweb / Disposition / Goulbap

By Corey Maass on 7 October, 2019

Bakongo tracks bring you peace, like walking in the woods. So many tiny, fractal-like details form patterns, blend together, and become one, whole natural experience. These three gems are no exception.

“Momoweb”, by Bakongo, starts us off with an almost-ghom like rub before stepping off into crisp rhythmic complexity. “Disposition” begins with an uncharacteristic focus on melody, until the simple phrases fade into the background, becoming a soft bed for the beats to lie on. Just when you’re lulled into serene bliss, “Goulbap” smacks you around with slightly off-kilter percussion, straight out of a kitchen cabinet. The drum sounds are unusual individually but together make up a most natural drum set.

Let these tunes woo you, let your mind wander. It’s a delightful meditation.
