Been Laden You Too Long
The Darbuki Kings - Been Laden You Too LongAntone and Adnan (Antonio Albarran and Robin Anders) are at it again, connecting with the inner rhythms of the universe and using them to transport their listeners through the cosmos with multiple world drums, Bouzouki and Octave Mandolins, Indian Tabla and Flutes and more. They find themselves playing for a party for one of the new "private" space adventure companies. It seems the Board of Directors figured "If we're going to put people into space they're going to need entertainment!" To make a shorty story long, it turns out they are now officially the first musical ensemble to perform on the moon. Can you believe it? They would like to most humble thank the great American Rythm and Blues artist Otis Redding for the title of their new 8 track record.
