Jah Wobble is one of the great English originals. Thirty years ago, his rumbling bass-playing defined the sound of Public Image Limited, and since then he has used his love for dub reggae to transform anything from avant-garde jazz-rock to English folk songs. After being influenced by his wife, Zi Lan Liao, an exponent of the guzheng (Chinese zither), he turned his attention to far eastern styles, with startling results. This album is a brave experiment in east-west fusion; yet it's also a typical Wobble album, thanks to that distinctive bass work and echoing dub effects, and the refreshingly rough-and-ready production. The album represents a cross-cultural collaboration between Wobble and a 22-piece outfit consisting of Mao and Tibetan ethnic musicians and dancers, Sichuan opera mask changers, and an Anglo-Chinese dub band.
