The Great Escape - Music & More

CD reissue. Born as Florian Fricke's brainchild, Popol Vuh needs little introduction, the band stayed active between the late 1960s and late 1990s (until Florian's passing in 2001). Regarded as pioneers in avant-garde German electronic music, their early works practically laid down the foundations for 'Kosmische Muzik' (Space Music) with the then new sounds of the Moog synthesizer joined with ethnic percussion. Cobra Verde (featuring Klaus Kinski) was the final collaboration between Popol Vuh and director Werner Herzog. Originally released in 1987. Regal chants accompanied by hand drums, guitars, piano and clavier in a sacred manner are alternated with synthesizer themes that have a tense/dramatic and haunting effect. African ceremonial music and the Choir of the Bavarian State Opera corner this as a landmark meditative & ambient piece of cosmic music.
