TUNE kakuzi - Sun Kissed Planet
Sun Kissed Planet is the title track from Kakuzi’s 3rd EP. It is also their debut release with Major G. The band started playing the track live in early 2009 and such was the response to the track, it sparked off an entire new direction for the band.
The track has some unusual features, it incorporates the unusual time signature 5/4 and uses unconventional instrumentation. It also takes influence from world music using traditional african chants, drumming rhythms and the Marimba combining this with classical asian melodies and western pop music.
The track was self produced by the band and was mixed by Lucas O’Neill
