Jon Hassell// Aka/Darbari/Java – Magic Realism // Editions EG // 1983

Genre: Tribal Ambient

The 80’s were a huge breakthrough for tribal ambient music and even though Hassell had already made significant headway in the scene with Fourth World Vol. 1: Possible Musics and Fourth World Volume Two: Dream Theory in Malaya, they were only preparation for this massively influential magnum opus. Thanks to Chris Caver for the wonderful recommendation.
