Karaba biography
Founded in Munich, Germany in 2014

KARABA is a german music collective hailing from Munich which has a rather wide instrumental range available. Based on that they are offering a prolific psych/kraut/jazz/fusion mixup while featuring influences from Embryo, Missus Beastly, Pink Floyd, Amon Düül 2 and others. Their ambitious self-released debut album is dominated by two extended suites, where each of them will just fill a vinyl side.

4 stars This album is reminiscent of Embryo's DNA, in some way, I especially mean the vivid jazz fusion tinged explorations like Ozmose for example. And yes, somewhat obvious, KARABA is deriving from Munich too. Furthermore, when having a look at the line up in a more detailed manner, what definitely attracts attention is the involvement of Marja Burchard on the vibraphone. Daughter of Christian, the co-founder of Embryo. He sadly passed away early 2018, though she's holding up the earlier spirit, while turning away from their prior ethno world orientation. Back to the roots so to say. With both bands, also including some staff overlaps, for example percussionist Jakob Thun and Marcel (Maasl) Maier on the bass guitar.

So what makes it different to an Embryo album, one or two may ask? While assuming that the tracks are based on diverse studio jam sessions, Marja may not hold the artistical leadership here, I would insist. The impact of the other band musicians will lead into a more psychedelic and art rock direction, even showing some avantgarde approach. So this partly is also akin to the eclecticism of the Chickencage Experience, so much the more the predecessor Polytoxicomane Philharmonie. The split song Der G.A.U. delivers a funny gimmick in between with a monotonic advice to flip the vinyl album side. Truly an awesome production. This should not be missed by the open-minded prog community.

Thanks to rivertree for the artist addition. and to Quinino for the last updates
