Elia Cmiral – Shaman-The Ballet (LP)
From the soundtrack composer to Ronin and Battlefield Earth (!?) comes this early work as a composer to a ballet in Sweden made in 1987. And with a title like "Shaman - The Ballet" you know you're in for a treat (in the same cards-on-the-table approach as films like "Abba - The Movie" or "Cannibal - The Musical"; you know what you're getting).
There's kalimbas, pan flutes and chanting coupled with slap bass and drum machines. Tribal drumming, eerie new age synth workouts and vague ethnic references.
NOTES: Comes with a 12" insert with extensive information about the ballet; costumes, choreography etc.
