We gladly present the long awaited debut album by kurdish multi-instrumentalist Philippos Sîpano and Frankfurt am Main's mighty duo Dan Bay & Le Rubrique aka The MPC Orchestra. "The Spirit of Dilovan" pays tribute to Philippos Sîpano and Dan Bayat's youth band "Spirit Of Dilovan", sketches the different musical paths the two took over the years and finds its final form in their new collaboration with Dilovan Le Rubrique, a master in the studio and a true patchbay wizzard. With multilayered arrangements based on different kurdish music traditions and inspired by their indivudual experiences of Pop- and Clubculture, Philippos Sîpano & The MPC Orchestra's new album can be both perceived as diasporic Popmusic or epic dancefloor monster for experienced music lovers.
All songs were produced at Offenbach's Upper Citycenter Studio and dedicated to all Dilovans* out there, hoping they will one day constitute the majority of all people and we will all find peace, love and habibtiness on planet earth.
* good-hearted people
