FIRST TIME ON VINYL - FROM ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES
Recorded in Florence in October 1979, “Asia” represents Egisto Macchi’s musical journey across the East. In this work, Macchi describes the many faces of Asia through his unmistakable, electric style. In Macchi’s music, Asia acquires mystical, religious, naturalist, sacred, and adventurous connotations. Acoustic instruments dominate this album; among percussion, zithers, celestas, flutes, marimbas, sansas, and violins, the listener embarks on a musical journey outside the limits of space and time.
