Dust off your dumbeks and polish your ankhs, there’s some Egyptian adventure sounds heading your way!
Set Rising is the upcoming trad-RPG adventure from publishers Savage Mojo and with it comes a 12 track album that answers the question: what would happen if atmospheric electronica and a full size orchestra combined with traditional African and Middle Eastern instruments? Featuring Darabuka, Dumbek, Riq, Santoor, Oud, Duduk, Zourna…the list of lively ethnic instruments goes on.
Have a sneak peak (and it really is a microcosm of the final product) at the following links that showcase the light and dark sides of the Set Rising world
EDIT: These teasers are no longer available – instead, listen to the whole album here!
