Atuy So Kata 03:51


"Atuy So Kata" is the closing track of Umeko Ando’s "Ihunke" album. It is a poetic dedication to the surface of the ocean. Her voice is especially mesmerizing in this traditional Ainu song, and it perfectly captures all the brittle and enchanting qualities of her vocal art. Patric Catani (aka Candie Hank, aka Ill Till) is an artist of many faces who has already appeared on a couple of Pingipung releases. He is widely known for his recent soundtracks for video games such as Minton and Pit People. His playful remix approaches the Ainu folk song with an offbeat punch, spacing out on delays and dub textures.

"Many white waves on the ocean
They look like rabbits jumping."

This is Pingipung 063.

After the "Iuta Upopo" 7’’ (pp058, 2017), the "Ihunke" re-issue 2LP (pp060, 2018) and the "Ihunke Remixes" 12’’ (pp062, 2018), this single is latest step in Pingipung’s explorations of Umeko Ando’s legacy and contemporary interpretations of her unique music.
