Ragas, Jugs & Mojo Hands
Not yet reviewed.
The latest offering from Gwyn Ashton, 'Ragas, Jugs & Mojo Hands,' is an exotic blend of acoustic blues and world music and features collaboration from fellow singer, guitarist and percussionist Chris Finnen. Two of the finest musicians to come out of South Australia, both inductees of the South Australian Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame and friends for 35 years, the two kindred-spirit musicians join together for the first time on record.
With special guest Peter Beulke on upright bass, they form a formidable partnership bringing a unique Australian flavor to the blues, evoking a tapestry of varied cultural influences, weaving the sounds of Indian, Arabic and African traditions into the album. Recorded over two evenings this spontaneous session involved no rehearsal or pre-production. They recorded everything live, first or second take, on acoustic guitars and
National resonators, Ashton also on Weissenborn, with Finnen adding chumbush, darbuka, cajon, clay pot and banjo.
Ashton has spent the past 30 years touring Australia and Europe, recording with some of the biggest names in blues and rock including musicians from Deep Purple, Robert Plant's and Rory Gallagher's bands and touring with names such as Buddy Guy, Mick Taylor, Peter Green and many more. His contribution to this album includes material he has written on the road from Poland, Czech Republic and the UK.
