On the Herzberg and other summer open-airs the six guys from Orange are always a safe number. Their mix of extraterrestrial ethno with didgeridoo and throat singing and driving rhythms from all kinds of percussion, drums and electronics regularly provides hypnosis par excellence. Some time has passed since the last longplayer "Hu" from 2009 and actually you can hear some changes on "Oya". For the first time there are identifiable texts, which are therefore also printed on the CD. With the relatively relaxed rhythms of "Der Auftrag" it starts. Something to groove in. You can almost sing along to the cool title track, Dub and a certain pop appeal make it almost mass compatible: Supermax send their greetings. "Tubifex Tubifex", sung in German, is a novelty: You have never been so close to the solo work of Rainer von vielen before. Sitar sounds and overtone singing enter into marriage at this ethno party. Even a Tango can be in "Tangogo of the Sun", but "Cloud 9" is now really too much air pop. No question about it, you experiment, but in "Massala Sung" and "Tamtoe" didgeridoo and percussion are again in the centre of attention.
