The first ever worldwide album from the Republic of Djibouti and Ostinato's first studio recorded album. While the music of Somalia is widely celebrated, it's neighbor, Djibouti, formerly known as French Somaliland, is home to an equally deep reservoir of it's own unique Somali music.A stunning collision of Indian Bollywood, Jamaican dub and reggae, sleek horns inspired by Harlem's jazz era, and the haunting and joyous synthesizer melodies of the Red Sea by Groupe Rtd, the national radio band of Djibouti and one of East Africa's best kept secrets.Recorded in three days - as per the strict limit set by Djibouti's national radio authorities - with a state-of-the-art mobile recording studio replete with the very best audio interfaces and carefully positioned microphones around a less than soundproof room to achieve a vibrant, professional sound while maintaining the analog warmth of decades prior.
