Sun Ra - Strange Strings

Another legendary album, another strange thing in the discography of Sun Ra.
Originally recorded in 1966 on his label (Saturn), now reissued on CD with a bonus track (“Door Squeak”).
Sun Ra tests the Astro-Infinity Arkestra’s skill to play the heterogeneous stringed instruments (ukuleles, banjos, mandolins, kotos, koras, pipa, etc) of his exotic collection.
An unconventional reference point in experimental music.
