Frisk Frugt: Den Europaeiske Spejlbue (Vinyl LP)
Double vinyl LP pressing. What do you do after a journey of musical discovery in Mali and Burkina Faso? You go cycling in southern Germany! That's what Anders Lauge Meldgaard, the man behind the pseudonym Frisk Frugt (translated as 'Fresh Fruit') did after finishing work on his previous album Burkina Faso i det himmelblå rum hvor solen bor, suite (2010), a record that made his name as one of the champions of experimental music. Where Burkina Faso... took listeners on a magical musical journey from the African country of it's title and back to Denmark, Anders's 2015 sonic adventure finds him travelling closer to home. Called Den Europ'iske Spejlbue (English translation: The European Mirror-Arch), the album consists of 12 orchestral collages, all revolving around the study of songs in Danish matched up with what you could call European world music.
