Biography

From www.lemongrassmusic.de

A world music project in every extent, “Sansura” the project and its self-titled first album European debut, blends urban and spiritual sound landscapes. Quite fascinatingly, this vision is not only aimed at the mind and soul but also moves the body. Imagine Thievery Corporation and Fatboy Slim on a psychedelic trip and you have some idea of where “Sansura” may take you.

Creative mastermind Kira, world artist recently moved from London to Japan, provided the track concept, basic music themes and ethnics. His London based partner, Lerner has been in charge of most the electronic side including the overall sound engineering and production. Kira recorded with many guest musicians and also played a lot of traditional instruments himself. A special credit must be given to Gab sitar player, for his invaluable and unique contribution, sound and writing wise, providing also flute, oud and percussion. Although the track list suggests mainly Indian influences, the actual inspiration is somewhat different. As project creator Kira points out: “The reason why the Indian sound is there, is not because of Indian music itself, which I love anyway, but because of what happened in the late 1960s. Back then, Indian music has been the first ever major “world music” import, a worldwide new concept, and was naturally integrated into psychedelic music. Therefore the music on “Sansura” is rather psychedelic-influenced where sitar appears as solo instrument”
