Fantastic follow up Dub Ainu album from OKI. More trippy, dubby, hypnotic, psychedelic tonkori grooves and Ainu chants. These tunes are newly recorded so more similar to the acclaimed OKI Dub Ainu Band live shows. Echoes of Africa with guest vocalist Fania, bass dub master Hirohisa, new version of Hanro featuring female vocalist Rekpo, and solo tonkori pieces with various added effects and instruments. Ancient Ainu sounds created while turning knobs on a mixing desk with a spliff hanging out the mouth. 8 tracks, 35 minutes. 1. Dub Serenade 2. Utari 3. Shamanic Dub 4. Dub Arrow 5. Hanro Dub 6. Sannupista Dub 7. Koshi Turiri Dub 8. Ninja Drum.
