The Sven Wunder Wabi Sabi 7" is the second collaborative release between Mr Bongo and Piano Piano Records. Wabi Sabi is Sven Wunder’s follow up to the already contemporary cult-classic album Doğu Çiçekleri (Eastern Flowers) from 2019. Not one to be complacent and recreate a carbon copy of their previous works, Sven Wunder switched from the psychedelic-Turkish-funk sounds of Doğu Çiçekleri to the Japanese inspired ethereal funk of Wabi Sabi. Mr Bongo have selected the tracks Hanami and Shinrinyoko for this collector’s edition 7’. Japanese artists such as Hozan Yamamoto, Tadao Sawai, Kazue Sawai, spring to mind, but also David Axelrod and Dorothy Ashby on the beautiful string-led Hanami with it's laid-back funk breaks. Shinrinyoku has a slightly more raw cinematic-funk sound, yet is cushioned with warm strings and tripped-out keys - pure, rare-library music vibes.
