Jean Yves Tourbin – Gayan

Jean Yves Tourbin managed to peek out of his nest of gratuitous facial hair and somehow emerge with a tender eastern instrument augmented folk album. The grueling frenchness* of the vocals may repel most, but most tracks are filled with gorgeous finger picked guitars, harps, strings and flutes. For some reason this found its way to be pressed in Denmark, perhaps due to the subversive nature of Tourbin’s vaguely new age social protest ragas.

PRIVATE DANISH. 300 Pressed. 1980.
Reproed on CD by Underground Masters
