The Sout Project ('salt' in Afrikaans, pronounced "note") is pleased to present it's debut album, "Story". This fresh expression of 'world emergent' music has been conceived and recorded in Cape Town, South Africa. While deeply engaged in diverse musical traditions, and oozing creative musicality, 'Story' is more than just an album: it represents a vision, woven into song. Eclectic and ecumenical, the music emerges from a spiritual journey which is being shared by many others across the world. Featuring the American writer and visionary Brian McLaren, the dazzling African choir Siyaya, the haunting Xhosa traditional musician Madosini, the poignant voice of 'tribal elder' Annemie Bosch, and a dizzying array of exotic instruments & organic electronica, the Sout Project is a broad collective of creative people, singers, instrumentalists, writers, and prophets, curated and cajoled by composer/producer Nic Paton. "Story" will appeal to spiritual seekers and seasoned worshippers alike, as it frames the concerns of today's world as well as some ancient responses to perennial questions, in an inclusive, open ended invitation to take part in the Divine drama, this Story in which we find ourselves.
