We were born before the wind
Also younger than the sun
Ere the bonnie boat was won as we sailed into the mystic
Hark, now hear the sailors cry
Smell the sea and feel the sky
Let your soul and spirit fly into the mystic

Van Morrison songs and lyrics have always stood their time. The audio equivalent of good hashish. Ridiculously catchy, danceable and psychedelic, The Spy from Cairo has put together an upbeat album that spans practically every style of pop music to come out of the Arab world over the last fifty years. ‘Keep On Rolling’, released early 2013 on the Paris DJs label, is only The Silvertones‘ third album, and a celebration of a nearly 50 years-long career, with re-recordings of classic Silvertones hits such as ‘Smile’‘Old Man River’, or Sufferer’s ChildWith Pascal Oritaimae, his Pacific brother and musical soul mate, Anthony Cobbing set out to make an album, Siva Pacifica,  that would preserve Melanesian integrity while in harmony with the contemporary world. It is a tapestry woven from traditional sources and powerful myth that brings together sounds and people from throughout Melanesia. Ancient chants fuse with dark undertones and haunting melodies to deliver a true artistic representation of the union between Melanesia’s past and the outside world that threatens to consume it. Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
