Anima is a U.K.-based outfit that comprises the complementary talents of Ali Calderwood and Daniela Broder, who on their latest release deliver a sonic experience that is out of this world.
Calderwood primarily plays keyboards and synthesizers and Broder focuses on vocals and acoustic guitar, with the duo also sharing performances on a variety of unique ethnic instruments. The result is a sound that is very celestial while also grounded and fusing together elements of world, jazz, new age, and electronica.
Prominent features of the music include sinewy synthesizer leads by Calderwood and impressionistic guitar intonations by Broder.
This is tuneful, mystical, and ear- and mind-opening music that will take you to another plateau.
