KINK GONG & LI DAIGUO: DALI CHINA
AKUPHONE AKU1019 Digital Out now!
Vinyl November 21

The prolific Kink Gong (aka Laurent Jeanneau) returns in a unique duet with one of the most prominent artists of the Chinese avantgardist scene Li Daiguo. Kink Gong and Li Daiguo first met in Chengdu (capital of Sichuan Province, China) while playing the same night at the Jahbar music venue.
A few months later, as they become neighbors in Cai Cun, a village near the old town of Dali (Yunnan), Kink Gong begins recording Daiguo playing Pipa, Cello and Zheng. He then proceeded to deconstruct these recordings while adding voices that he mainly recorded in Yunnan Province. This fantastic combination of field recordings, experimental folk melodies and electronic treatment leads us to a fourth underground universe reminiscent of .............s finest hours.

KINK GONG & LI DAIGUO : DALI CHINA

We met in Chengdu playing in the same venue Jahbar in the capital of Sichuan, but it s later on when Daiguo became my neighbor in Cai cun (village by the lake Erhai outside of Dali old town) in Yunnan province, that I recorded LI DAIGUO performing the PIPA, CELLO, ZHENG in my home on a day easy to remember : 11/11/2011. From that day I started to transform the sound of the pipa and collage it with voices I recorded mostly in Yunnan province.
