Bjork’s new self-produced album, Volta, is a beautiful blend of her wild pagan roots mixed with themes of revolution, war, femininity and feminism evoking Bjork’s days of teenage punk. A trip on behalf of UNICEF to Indonesia in January 2005 (after the tsunami hit) is said to be a major factor in Volta’s tribal themes and upbeat tempo. However, the album does not lack a sense of peace and harmony. Bjork’s sixth album includes her usual unexpected collaborations - this time with an African collective, a Malian kora player, a Chinese pipa player, a ten-piece all-female and all-Icelandic brass section to name a few. Volta contains something for everyone who has been a fan of Bjork at any stage of her diverse career.
