L'album di debutto di Roberto Musci del 1984, The Loa of Music, era già riapparso una decina d'anni fa in versione arricchita in cd per iniziativa dell'olandese Lowlands con il titolo Debris of a Loa. Oggi fa il suo ritorno per Soave Records, un doppio vinile con la serie completa e in gran parte inedita delle sessioni di registrazione originali: The Loa of Music (The Complete Sessions).

The Loa of Music is the first recording project of Milanese composer and musician Roberto Musci inspired by Voodoo Religion; Vever (the magical voodoo paintings) and Loas, the dark and magic spirits. The deep charm of non-Western music has led him to travel for many years across Africa, India and Asia, studying rhythms, scales, performance and interpretation of the most varied traditional and indigenous music, as well he make many field recordings and collected ethnic instruments that would then be combined with synthesizers and electronics in The Loa of Music. Recorded in 1983 originally had 80 minutes of music but only half was released on original LP. Soave pressed for the first time the Complete Recording Session from original tapes of this masterpiece that combines in a natural, spontaneous and unforced manner the sounds of distant and historic cultures, loopped, cut and effected, with avantgarde and mystical approach creating a very personal and inspired innovative musical language.
