“Sam Shalabi has raised the bar for modern psychedelic music by composing this epic suite for his 20-piece Land of Kush orchestra. Utilizing African, Middle Eastern, Indian, jazz, rock, and folkloric sources, The Big Mango weaves a seamless montage of styles in a transcendent way that is rarely, if ever, achieved. A singular cohesive statement built around five key tracks written for five different female vocalists…it will demand your attention from start to finish." – Alan Bishop (Sun City Girls / Sublime Frequencies)

PLEASE NOTE: The sound of scratchy vinyl on the opening song of this record is intentional and is part of the mastered audio mix. Your LP is not defective!
