LATIN GARDEN VOL. 1



-THE WORLD OF LATIN GROOVES-

Auf "Latin Garden" findet man (von 2-3 Standards mal abgesehen) nicht die Titel, die man überall hört. So einen originellen Latin-Sampler bekommt man nicht oft in die Hand! So etwas Verrücktes kann nur von Gülbahar Kültür kommen, dieser Moderatorin des Radioprogramms "WDR/Funkhaus Europa", die seit vielen Jahren als Expertin auf dem Gebiet orientalischer bzw. asiatischer Musikformen gilt.

Auf Latinostücke aus Japan, Indien, Russland, Belgien, Pakistan, Griechenland, Türkei, Deutschland und England ist wohl niemand vorbereitet. Aber "Latin Garden" ist keine Kuriositäten-Sammlung: das sind alles gut hörbare / tanzbare Titel. Nur wer weiß schon, daß es vom verstorbenen Qawwali-Großmeister Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan eine Latin-Nummer gibt? Wer kennt hierzulande japanische Kapellen, wie die Crazy Ken Band?

Bei Gülbahar Kültür´s Ruf stellt man sich innerlich auf Dutzende von Oriental-Latin-Nummern im Stil von Amr Diab ein, aber überraschend wenige Tracks enthalten orientalische Elemente. Stattdessen bekommt man herrliche Stücke von Spanien´s Hip-Hop-Königin Shuga Wuga, von Ojos De Brujo aus Barcelona oder der göttlichen Bobi Céspedes aus L.A. geliefert. Selbst die Kommerzabteilung ist nicht vergessen worden, die Stücke von Aventura, den Chiki Chaka Girls oder Speedy können in jeder normalen Disco laufen. Von Latino-Superkrachern wie Celia Cruz´s "Rie Y Llora" und Yerba Buena´s "Guajira" mal ganz abgesehen. Zu den absoluten Highlights des Doppelsamplers zählen die beiden Remixe von DJ Martin Morales. Und nicht zu vergessen ist die tolle Nummer von Ska Cubano, dieser Londoner Band, die bei der letzten Womex-Messe in Essen gnadenlos abgeräumt hat



LATIN GARDEN VOL. 1
-THE WORLD OF LATIN GROOVES-

There are a lot of latin-compilations as many as grains of sand on a vast beach. As we know, quantity has nothing to do with quality, though. On one hand there are astonishingly boring anthologies that do not get much attention by the audience. On the other hand there are compilations which are compiled without any plan by a trainee who was given maximum 30 minutes of time in the archive of the label to compile the cheap „ritmo-latino-cd“ of the week.

Furthermore, there are hundreds of compilations which contain great latin-tracks which you should really have as a DJ or latin music lover; however, these Latin-CDs usually have one great insufficiency: we meet the same tracks in each of them!

On Latin Garden (except for 2 or 3 tracks) you do not find tracks you hear everywhere. What you will find is precious material which you can not come across very often! Such a crazy stuff could only come from Gülbahar Kültür, who moderates the radioshow "WDR/Funkhaus Europa" and is known as an expert on the scope of oriental and asian music-forms.

It seems as if people are not prepared to discover latin-tracks from Japan, India, Russia, Belgium, Pakistan, Greece, Turkey, Germany and England; it is contrary to one‘s usual expectations. But also "Latin Garden" is not a collection of curiosities which gathers together weird tracks that one is not familiar with; every track it includes is so satisfactory that you can listen and dance to. How many of us know that Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, the deceased qawwali-grandmaster has a latin-tune? How many people in this part of the world are aware of the existence of a band such as Crazy Ken Band from Japan?

Although, people who know Gülbahar Kültür´s reputation, in the inside will prepare themselves for dozens of oriental-latin tunes of typical Amr Diab style, surprisingly only a few tracks contain oriental elements. Instead of that you get magnificient tunes by Spain`s hip-hop queen Shuga Wuga, by Ojos De Brujo from Barcelona or the divine Bobi Céspedes from L.A. Even the commercial-department has not been forgotten; the songs by Aventura, the Chiki Chaka Girls or Speedy can be played in any usual disco, apart from latino-supersmashs like Celia Cruz´s "Rie Y Llora" and Yerba Buena´s "Guajira". The two remixes by DJ Martin Morales belong to the absolute highlights of this double-cd. The stunning tune by Ska Cubano band from London, which mercilessly rocked the last Music Fair Womex 2004 in Essen should not be forgotton to mention.

In other words: you don´t have to be a clairvoyant to know that this double-compilation will enter Top 10 of the worldmusic-charts

LATIN GARDEN VOL. 1
-THE WORLD OF LATIN GROOVES-

Latin müzigi kompilasyon albümlerinin sayisi genis bir kumsaldaki kum taneleri kadar çok. Ancak, bildigimiz gibi nicelik, niteligi beraberinde getirmiyor. Bir yanda dinleyicilerin pek fazla ilgisini çekmeyen inanilmaz sikicilikta antolojiler, diger yanda haftanin ucuz „ritmo-latino-cd“sini derlemesi için müzik sirketlerinin arsivlerinde kendilerine en fazla yarim saat süre taninmis stajyerler tarafindan plansiz programsiz, gelisigüzel derlenmis kompilasyonlar var.

Bunlardan baska, bir dj ya da latin müzigi seven biri olarak sahip olmaniz gereken harika latin parçalari içeren yüzlerce kompilasyon var; ancak bu tarz Latin-CD‘lerinin de genelde tek bir eksigi bulunuyor: her birinde ayni parçalarla karsilasiyoruz!

Latin Garden‘da (2 ya da 3 parça disinda) her yerde duyabileceginiz parçalar yok. Karsiniza çikacak olan sey çok sik rastlayamayacaginiz degerli bir malzeme! Böylesine çilgin, manyak bir secki ancak, merkezi Almanya'nin Köln kentinde olan "WDR/Funkhaus Europa"da yayinlanan "Mondo Cannibale" adli dünya müzigi sunuculari arasinda yer alan, oryantal ve asya müzik stilleri alaninda bir uzman olan, Gülbahar Kültür‘den gelebilirdi.

Insanlar, Japonya, Hindistan, Rusya, Belçika, Pakistan, Yunanistan, Türkiye, Almanya ve Ingiltere‘den Latin tarzi parçalar kesfetmeyi ummazlar; bu genel beklentilere ters düser. Ama "Latin Garden", kimsenin tanimadigi garip parçalari biraraya toplayan bir antika kolleksiyonu da degil; içerdigi her parça dinleyebileceginiz ve dans edebileceginiz tarzda tatmin edici. Kaçimiz merhum qawwali-üstadi Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan‘in bir latin parçasi oldugunu biliyor? Dünyanin bu yakasinda kaç kisi Japonya‘dan Crazy Ken Band gibi bir grubun varligindan haberdar?

Gülbahar Kültür‘ün namini bilenler kendilerini içten içe, düzinelerce tipik Amr Diab tarzi oryantal-latin melodilerine hazirlasalar da, bu beklentinize karsilik verilmiyor. Sasirtici bir sekilde sadece birkaç parça oryantal unsurlar içeriyor; bunun yerine, bu kompilasyonda Ispanya‘nin hip-hop kraliçesi Shuga Wuga‘nin, Barcelona‘dan Ojos De Brujo‘nun ya da Los Angeles‘dan Bobi Céspedes‘in büyüleyici melodilerini bulacaksiniz. Ayrica albümün ticari tarafi da gözardi edilmemis; Celia Cruz´un "Rie Y Llora"sı ve Yerba Buena´nın "Guajira"sı gibi süper latin hitlerinin yani sira, Aventura, Chiki Chaka Girls ya da Speedy‘nin sarkilari da her diskoda rahatça çalinabilir bir müzik çizgisi sunuyor.

DJ Martin Morales‘in yaptigi iki remiks bu çift CD‘lik kompilasyonun ilgi çekici parçalarina dahil. Geçen sene Essen‘deki Womex 2004 Müzik Fuarıini yerinden oynatan, Londra cikisli Ska Cubano grubunun harika parçasini da unutmamak gerek.

Diger bir degisle: bu çift CD‘lik derleme albümün dünya müzigi listelerinde ilk 10‘a girecegini bilmek için illa da falcı olmak gerekmiyor.
