2nd listen: A splendid free improvisation record, not at all the wacky thing some might be fearing. Short inspired duos, with lots of mouth sounds and small objects and toys, all approached in a very serious manner. This is not the record I was expecting from Joane Hétu and Jean Derome, it’s even better. La vie, c’est simple, their previous album, will still hold a special place in my heard, but this Shaman is bewitching. Bravo.
