The album is named for the Ostriconi valley in Corsica, France – and across it’s 9 mellifluoustracks, listeners are transported to the lush and picturesque banks of the valley’s eponymousriver. The at times surreal beauty and tranquility of the region is sonically recreated by Yeahmanand his collaborators on “Ostriconi”, who lead us on a melancholic journey down from themystical mountains to the vibrant sea, giving us a sense of a diverse and unfurling world at ourfeet.The recording and production of the album were the product of Dasso’s singular artistic vision,and give musical form to artistic alliances he built between Toulouse, Dakar, Napoli andMarseille. Yeahman shares his first opus as an invitation of sorts for us to reunite in a sleepyworld, one where we all yet long for the flames of dancing to reignite. “Ostriconi” bids everyoneto dream of an uplifting future, and arouses that sleeping hope for such that lives in us all.The languidly beautiful “Deelalhli” grounds the start of journey in rhythm and lively melodiesright from the off, setting a tone that is explored across the rest of the album. “Baixi Baixi”follows as an ode to nature before “Soupe Feu” returns us to Yeahman’s roots in a percussiveand sample-based dancefloor tune. The lead single “Sakoneta” needs no introduction as itelevates the tempo before “Ouloullou” and “Sueño Contigo” slowly bring us back to earth, apassage that culminates nicely with the introspective and pulsing “GLI-F4”. Mina Shankha,Hajna and Yeahman join forces to restyle a Peruvian cumbia classic “Cariñito” before the albumcloses with “Lecce74”. Featuring El Buho, this last song is a melancholic ode that returns us toreality and puts a beautiful bow on the electric trip that is “Ostriconi”.
