Don’t miss songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Joachim Cooder, as he brings his debut album ‘Over The Road I’m Bound’ to DLWP this Autumn.
Joachim Cooder has been a sought-after percussionist for two decades now, on now-legendary recordings with his father, Ry Cooder, like the landmark Buena Vista Social Club sessions and on his own with artists like Ali Farka Touré, who inspired Cooder to take up the mbira.
On the new album, the songwriter and multi-instrumentalist uses the plain-spoken songs of country-music progenitor and banjo player Uncle Dave Macon as a jumping off point, playing with the lyrics and reworking melodies for his chosen instrument: an electric mbira (a variation on an African thumb piano).
“Warm, uplifting and spectacular” ★★★★ – Uncut
“Ry Cooder’s son beats his own path to fame” – MOJO
+ SAM AMIDON
A delight. An ethereal, electronica-tinged journey through the traditional repertoire.” – Sunday Times, Albums of the Year
“Like an Appalachian mountain folk song crossed with 1980s electro and given a subtle funk rhythm… an intoxicating blend.” – Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2
