Wide Horizons (600 x 600)

Mama Dance, Africa’s premier production music library, partner with composer/producer Nic Paton to present a formidable collection of production-ready music, the second in the “Space and Story” series.

Entitled “Wide Horizons”, this collection of 17 original compositions is presented in almost 100 unique mixes, catering for every media application.Besides every composition being available in 30 and 60 second and no-beat or no-vocals versions, the original pieces have been greatly enhanced, expanded and remixed as pared-down minimal or ambient alternatives.

Featuring a wide array of exotic and African instruments (including for example the karimba/kalimba, valiha and cittern), much of the music is a synthesis of the deeply African and the universally cinematic. Worth hearing are the impressively original vocals of collaborator Ntutu Nyiki, cinematic vocalisation diva.

Wide Horizons” celebrates and invites expansiveness, appealing to a sense of joyous adventure and awe, while also passing beyond the immediate field of normal vision into the darker, more numinous spaces of the soul.

This collection will appeal to myth-makers and dream weavers, those whose trade is travel, nature or the exotic. It will equally appeal to film directors and creative visionaries who need original and compelling World/African soundtracks to support the tales they are telling … “Wide Horizons” creates the sublime spaces that powerful stories demand.
