Ghédalia Tazartès



Originally recorded in 1977, with a limited pressing in 1979 on the private underground French label Cobalt, Ghédalia Tazartès debut album, Diasporas, quietly fell into the catacombs of avant-garde obscurity only known in academic and fringe circles.  Tazartès himself, (a strange, nomadic character) played upon myths and legends about his existence and sounds, making him somewhat of a lost legend, trapped between a modern time and a surreal, simple age.  Inclusion of Diasporas on Steve Stapleton’s famed “Nurse With Wound List” only added fuel to the fire of this legendary album.  Traditional Parisian folk, frightening tape loops, and gypsy incantations only scratch the surface of this rare document. Truly one of the most fascinating and mysterious albums ever created. Remastered from the original source tapes from Ghédalia Tazartès and reissued for the first time on vinyl in decades.
