Audio: Tanya Auclair’s releases latest EP "Origami"


We like to keep our promises here at okayafrica, and last month we promised to let you know when the incomparable Tanya Auclair would release her new EP Origami. Well, we’re here to tell you that not only has the EP been released, but it’s FREE to download... assuming you aren’t the 1,001st person to try. That’s right, the EP is free for the first 1,000 downloaders.

This new release is more experimental than her previous EP.  The style as a whole is minimalist but the singing is robust on all three tracks, and Auclair’s voice switches from one mode to the next in a matter of seconds. To call Origami experimental would be an understatement, but the collage of sounds never feels alien enough to remove the listener from its trance inducing power. There’s a good chance that you haven’t heard anything this original in a long time, so I wouldn’t wait too long to start downloading.
