Afro Celt Sound System - POD' Album Review

Afro Celt Sound System have been regulars at festivals especially Womad where they have build up quite a reputation. This is no surprise as their mix of traditional Western African and Irish music creates a truly unique sound. Pod' represents remixes of their music by some great producers, including Rae and Christian, to create a blend of innovative, creative music that is refreshing and liberating.

Each track has on own uniqueness. This album takes you on a journey. There is excellent break beat drumming, cool programming, ethereal trippy effects and uplifting vocals. There are some real trance moments, serious big band sounds, nice Irish guitar licks and the African vocals work really well on this form of progressive world tribal dance music. It has all the hallmarks of an after club album for those deeper reflections or outdoor festival atmospheres. This music is real and captivating.
