about

“Caravanas” is the second single from Rada: Tropical Cosmic Sounds From Space, a double album from Angel Rada’s ahead- of-time work, pioneer of electronic music in Venezuela compiled by El Palmas Music (Barcelona). This is one of the most exciting songs extracted from Continuum (1986), his fourth album, which took him with almost a year producing, and represents a subversion of the conventional canons in his home country.
Like a caravan appearing on a dune’s top, one by one, different elements are presented with a rather natural cadence: a two octaves triangular waves arpeggio rises and falls like mysterious waves amid a breeze of noise, a rain of arabesque notes begins to fall from a sort of electronic designed sitar, painting landscapes of tropics from another universe. Each element captivates our attention like a camels making its way into the immensity.
All different layers of sounds continues to overlap each other creating a dense tampura-like textures, but when the main percussion enters is when the main melody rises. “Caravans” would become one of the audience’s favorites, especially in live performances, where accent variations of the main rhythm, surprisingly rises the motion. Certainly, an electrifying experience.
