Root Down lassen die liedhafte und erdige Energie Afrikas mit den experimentierfreudigen Elementen europäischer Musikkonzepte zusammenfliessen. Da sind die kickenden Rhythmen und Harmonien der südafrikanischen Kwelamusik, wie sie in den Hommagen an Chris McGregor zum Ausdruck kommen, zwei Klassiker von Fela Kuti oder die extrem schönen und funkelnden Kompositioinen von Tommy Meier.
Das Wechselspiel von polyrhythmischen Grooves und mystischen Atmosphären, von Feierlichkeit und Ausgelassenheit charakterisiert ein Album, das nicht nur die Hörenden erfreut, sondern mit seinen Flows und einprägsamen Riffs auch die Tanzenden mitreissen wird.


On The Master and the Rain, Root Down allows Africa's tuneful and downto-earth energy to merge with the more exploratory elements of European music concepts. There are the kicking rhythms and harmonies of South African Kwela music expressed in the homages to Chris McGregor, the two Fela Kuti classics and the compositions of Tommy Meier. Above all it should be emphasized how extremely beautiful and sparkling Meier's compositions are.
The interplay of polyrhythmic grooves and magical atmosphere, of ceremony and exuberance is characteristic of this album which will not only delight the listeners, but will also inspire dancers with its flows and catchy riffs.
