Noble Savage EP Vol. 1
“I am as free as Nature first made man, Ere the base laws of servitude began, When wild in woods the noble savage ran.”
The term “noble savage” expresses the idealized concept of the natural man and the innate goodness of one not exposed to the corrupting influences of civilization. The Noble Savage EP is an expression of the conflict between nature and western society as well as the fusion of modern music technology and indigenous music technique.
Taking influence from all over the world, Noble Savage starts out on the Big Island of Hawaii, with a psychedelic surf dub jam featuring The Laboratory and guitarist Open Mike.
Track two is a Dubstep version of a latin Cumbia from Colombia. It then moves into deeper and darker spaces with the title track Noble Savage, and the danceable, arabian influenced, Sands of Allah. The final track, “Bass Tribe 2012″ is a neo-tribal experimental piece used in performances by the Dakini
Temple’s Elizabeth Bast.
The idealization of the noble savage may have been a racist myth, but the value of the preservation of the ways life that are sustainable, versus the vanity and environmental destruction of material capitalism can’t be denied.
“We abhor that brutality which, under the gaudy names of ambition and glory, . . . sheds the blood of men who are all brothers.”
