Lipet Ei : Seven Brothers (Tutl)
cdRoots Code: tutl-ygg-lipet
Kristian Blak once again steps into difficult and strange musicical worlds on this recording with Khanty singer Kondrateva. The Khanty people live in an autonomous region in western Siberia, with a culture far removed from Russia. Incorporating these songs into any western framework woudl be challenging, but Blak and his Faroese ensemble push it to the limits of folk, rock, jazz and 'new music.' Just listen. I can't explain it.
"The Woman's Song"
"Grind i kary"
"Song of the wife for her husband"
Please note!Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
