Sons Of Kemet African Cosmology

    Impulse!
      • 1. Rites of Passage
      • 2. Myth Science

      Two never-before-heard b-sides hailed from the same sessions as the globally acclaimed new Sons of Kemet record 'Black To The Future'. First tune on the single 'Rites of Passage' is an 11 minute exploratory, contemplative composition led by Shabaka Hutchings’ vibrant melodies, accompanied by 'Myth Science' which showcases the band at their most realized; a rich arrangement coupled with driving, inter-woven percussions and lyrical horn playing.
