Akar Akar
The Chris Hinze Combination
Jazz/Ethno/World Music [KYT 815]

The Indonesian word 'Akar Akar' means roots, in the sense of 'source' or 'origin'; your base from where you explore your family, and your place in the world. Chris Hinze uses 'Akar Akar' to explore the base of his musical experience. The 2002 Chris Hinze Combination has its
roots, 'Akar Akar' in jazz mixed with the flavour of a rich musical tradition of the Moluccan islands and the typical sound of the African continent.

Chris Hinze: c, alto, bass and bamboo flutes, keyboards
Monica Akihary: vocals
Mola Sylla: vocals, African traditional instruments
Stephan Braun: cello
Frank Wardenier: drums, percussion
Erwin van Ligten: electric, acoustic and bariton guitars
