Banco De Gaia

Inspired to enter the field of electronic music by Britain's acid house explosion of the late '80s, Toby Marks took quite a different spin on electronica with his recordings as Banco de Gaia, introducing elements of Eastern and Arabic music, sampling similarly exotic sources, and tying the whole to ambient-dub rhythms. Marks began releasing cassette-only albums in the early '90s, distributed through a network of clubs and artists known as Planet Dog. When Planet Dog became a record label as well (later the home of Eat Static and Timeshard), Banco de Gaia debuted on disc with the Desert Wind EP, released in November 1993. Early the following year, Marks released his first album, Maya. For 1995's Last Train to Lhasa, Marks concerned himself with the plight of occupied Tibet. The following year brought a rare concert recording, Live at Glastonbury, with Big Men Cry appearing in 1997, followed by The Magical Sounds of Banco de Gaia two years later. In late 2000, Marks returned with Igizeh through Six Degrees Records, a label with which he decided to stay for 2004's You Are Here and 2006's Farewell Ferengistan. ~ John Bush, Rovi

Beautiful!
I've been looking for music like this all my life.
KLF had a lot to do with him. He gave them gredit on an album cover!
Discovered him on compilations originally and first bought Big Men Cry but believe the first experience was Last Train to Lhasa. Live at Glastonbury also excellent and as future solid pointed out a proper listen with good headphones is a must to fully understand.A b s o l u t e l y stunning at times.
Love his style and rich imaginative, pulsating variety!
some cool music for sure! :)
Definitely need to learn snowboarding again, damn
One of the best artists in the ambient genre. Pure.
Banco de Gaia is the Man!
Ofra Haza got me into BdG. Very cool :D
Me? I turn it on and just move...
think I'll go do that now.
I think, I feel, I move to BdG
Saw him live for the first time in Mexico. Awesome !!!
Dance me out in the trippy lushness of this perfect ski music.

music that transends
Love Banco. Last Train to Llasa is still my favorite but love it all....
First Banco disc I heard was "Live at Glastonbury" , still my favorite. Maya, Big Men and Magical Sounds are all also excellent albums. Long time fan. :)
The best part is not just the music, it's the message.
I entirely agree; I've yet to come across a "bad" BdG tune. Probably the most consistently excellent electronica I've heard.
It's hard to find a bad song by Banco de Gaia. But you can't even listen to just one. I could just keep listening to Banco de Gaia until I had listened to all his albums. Then I would probably do it again. Wow.
It helps me find my place, my mental spiritual place to relax and feel more centered

absolutely mind expanding.

Someone that obviously has a great grasp on emotional connection with electronic music....One can't make judgement on this artist by listening to just one track....or maybe one can.......li s t e n to the whole album on your headphones on your couch when no-one is home and you will understand.. . . . g r e a t electronic music....

Fun fun fun! So many tracks build in energy, very slowly, very precisely. Great stuff!
