Salenta + Topu: Moon Set, Moon Rise

1. Product Details

Topu and Salenta met in 2018 at a mutual friend's house in Bed Stuy, Brooklyn and decided to jam together. Their connection was instant: though they weren't recording with the intention of releasing the music they were making, the very first session they played together made it's way onto the album. They continued to meet up and improvise every week until the start of 2020. The two established rituals while recording: Topu would bring dark chocolate to their sessions that they would eat while talking about their days, herbalizing, and eventually playing. Topu and Salenta made very few edits to the live recordings. The album we hear is a document of their shared bond and their time together. If you listen closely, you can even hear the two artists breathing on the recording. "This music was liberating because both Topu and I were just allowed to be," Salenta says. "There was no right or wrong way, we were creating this atmosphere together. We were right there with the listener learning about and experiencing it." "What I love about Salenta as a human and a musician is how honest she is," adds Topu. "You hear when we're playing, suddenly she'll start laughing. There's such a human aspect to it that makes me so happy when I listen to the music." Both artists, as well as their community of friends and fellow musicians, see the music as healing. Topu and Salenta hope that listeners feel the peacefulness and liberation they experienced while creating these songs. Words by Vrinda Jagota
