Polo & Pan – Bakara

Here’s a song to get you set for the upcoming hot, muggy summer nights. I know some people dread them and can’t close enough to the air conditioning but the fleeting nature of summer, especially growing up in a place with such long winters, that makes me try to hold to every single moment of that at times uncomfortable, thick summer air.

Layered percussion takes centre stage in this track as shakers, xylophones and some sort of wooden flute(???) combine to form a jungle-like, tropical mood. Polo & Pan are an electronic duo, but I appreciate their attention to sounds with which we’re familiar to keep it fully immersed in what we associate with summer.
