Friday 22nd July saw the release of the first EP from Maribop. A 5 track digital download entitled “Un Munnu Dintra Un Munnu” (A World Within A World). The EP is available from bandcamp and represents the first realese from Francesco Giglio from Sicily and Peter Walsh from Ireland. The two have been writing together since 2014 and are well into a second batch of songs for release before the end of the year. The two are looking at making some live appearances in the Basque Country. Special thanks goes out to Urbil Artola (who plays guitar on the track “Un Munnu Dintra Un Munnu”), Gari Garaialde (photo session photographer), Nicholas D’ombrain (Zeitgeist Audio Mastering) and MIkel Iturria (Psilocybe studios).
Maribop is a collaboration between two musicians from very different backgrounds, very different cultures, very different influences, who speak very different languages, who have found that together they produce a very different music, a new fusion of rhythm and melody that calls on and echoes elements from across the world.
