CASSETTE. Hailing from Baltimore, Punjabi-American sitar player, songwriter and ambient musician Ami Dang unites the disparate worlds of Indian classical music and dreamy synth-infused song composition on beguiling new album The Living World's Demands. Envisioned as a lament to the challenges to which humanity has subjected the world and itself, Ami Dang's album builds on the floating, blissful ambience of 2019's Parted Plains and the vocal-led, pop structures of 2020 collaborative release Galdre Visions. The Living World's Demands is an immensely evocative and expressive collection, just as complex, nuanced and precious as the living world in it's title. Within are themes of trauma, survival, resistance, desperation and righteous vitriol, responding to greed, fear and injustice, yet the music is often euphoric, disarming and breathtakingly beautiful. Lilting sitar lines sparkle about an unpredictably broad spectrum of synthesis; Indian classical percussion rattles and snakes through it's drum programming. And atop, Ami's astonishing singing voice - with lyrics of English and Punjabi - deftly weaves her two worlds together with silken threads of both contemporary and traditional textures.
