Without Zero – Joi

7 03 2007


Without Zero marks the return of some true veterans of the Asian underground. JOI‘s initial aim was to fuse traditional Bengali music with the energetic funk attack of James Brown.
The band’s third album to appear on Peter Gabriel’s Real World imprint, Without Zero sees Shamsher joined by a cast of musicians including sitar player, an adventurous drum ’n’ bass duo and a vocalist. The album is a futuristic cocktail of live sitar, pipes, and tabla, beefed up with propulsive rhythms and techno bass. So complex, yet so sober and well fused! The album offers club dominating music, so don’t be surprised if you walk into a club and hear this one! It’s staying for a long long long time.
Tracks “Come Back To Me” and “What You Are” have been played on BBC Asian Network and still has high demand.
