‘Temple’ is the title track from the debut EP by MANSUR, a newly initiated project by Jason Kohnen (ex-The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble, ex-The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation) joined by Dimitry El-Demerdashi (ex-Phurpa) and introducing Martina Horváth on vocals.
The sound of MANSUR navigates between the waters of musical fantasy and reality – it morphs and blends traditional instrumentation with modern day electronica which lead the listener into mystical and magical unknowns that lie far past the realms of material perception. The result is a new unique sound which is at the same time warm, dark, misty, cosmic, mystical, cinematic and dynamic.
It’s an escapist journey with beautiful, mesmerizing qualities that are equally apparent in their entrancing video presentations.
Released in July, Temple will be followed by a full album, Karma, later in the year.
