Ko Shin Moon third LP puts the use of samples on a background layer and asserts his place as an instrumentalist. Leïla Nova presents itself as a nocturnal digression where analogical synthesizer, rhythm box, vocal tinkering and colourful instrumentarium are mixed together. Psychedelia, electronic variations, dance music, synth folk and filmed approach blend with traditional Greek, Afghan, Lebanese-Syrian, Turkish and Indian revisited repertoires. The artwork is designed by Lebanese artist Raphaelle Macaron.

Mixing digital and instrumental compositions, contemporary electronic sounds, traditional music and samples from field
recordings, Ko Shin Moon blurs the boundaries. This musical project maintains some mystery, it is disconcerting - which continent does it come from? Which period of time?
