It’s been so long since we have updated our site. Most of our news and info, new tracks and happenings at the BDO HG usually appear on our facebook page or soundcloud or announcements via twitter. But we also realise how important it is for our site to contain all that info in one place. so …..we’ll make a concerted effort to keep you update here as well.
* Our new album ‘Tales From The Grand Bazaar’ is finished and we hope to have news shortly on a release date. It was recorded with a host of great musicians and at various studios around the world. We recorded several tracks with the legendary Sly & Robbie
recorded at Anchor Studios in Kingston, Jamaica one of which will be on the new album. The track is called ’4,000 new Colours’. (Any guesses where the title comes from?)
We also journeyed to Turkey and recorded with Istanbul Strings and a host of great soloists in Istanbul.
We also recorded santoor and tabla in LA, keyboard overdubs and additional programming with the wonderful Tony Grund in New York (who also recorded french Horn in London), sarod, vocals, solo cello, tablas, percussion, keyboards,
guitars, Russian zither and a host of other strange instruments and vintage synths in the UK, sitar in Bombay, Vocals and sarangi in Delhi…the list goes on. Talking of lists we are currently putting together the incredibly time consuming sleeve notes with the vast number of musicians who contributed to this album – so important to make sure that every musician, engineer, studio and other key people involved with the album are credited – without them it would not have been possible.
