Hot on the heels of May’s The Peyote Dance, experimental duo Soundwalk Collective and Patti Smith have revealed details of the second album in their Perfect Vision trilogy.
Mummer Love, which focuses on poet Arthur Rimbaud’s travels in Ethopia, will be released on November 8 by Bella Union. It features guest contributions from Phillip Glass and Mulatu Astatke.
Hear a track from it, entitled “Eternity”, below:
Retracing Rimbaud’s steps to the holy city of Harar, The Soundwalk Collective spent time with the Sufi group of Sheikh Ibrahim to record their music and chants. “You obtain connections to other levels of yourself and consciousness,” says the duo’s Stephan Crasneanscki, of the musical process. “This connection, like poetry, is a universal language. A language of the soul, for the soul.”
