Banco de Gaia is the musical alter ego
of mainly Toby Marks
. He weaves a fine web of etno
. A subtle mixture of many worlds, yet quite easy for the average listener. A good way to move from etno to "electronica
" (I hate that phony definiton, but its the only one most US citizens think they understand) or vice versa.
Banco de Gaia's latest release (at the time of writing) is Iqizeh. Although some of the records tracks aren't quite his best, songs like Obsidian make this a worthy example in its genre.
