Irish-Malaysian dub duo to launch new album in Galway

MADU, THE Dublin-based band, fronted by Irish-Malaysian siblings Salim and Aminah Dastan, will launch their new album in Galway this weekend.

MADU will launch From the Elders’ Yard with a show in De Burgo’s on Sunday, which has been organised by Sean Agus Nua. The album was recorded in Kuala Lumpur and Dublin and features Liam Ó Maonlaí, Daniel Rostrup, and Simon Wall.

The duos songs steer away from typical dub soul or reggae arrangements to create a psychedelic roots music. On the night they will be joined by DJ and music culture specialist T-Woc and Bob and Zoltan on sax and trombone.

Donal Dineen has praised the album saying: “Salim Dastan has diligently programmed his way underground to a deep and dubby place where the best bass music resides...Aminah Dastan has a voice that demands to be heard in the quietest way possible. The arrangements give her ample room to exercise her range. Their words seem to sprout wings and really soar.”
