Tone via tearing your fiddle strings - inventive musicality in both expressing and representing the elimination of certain musical/living elements from society and culture from our pleasure, yet those playing still adapting; am guessing.

What's wrong with that @mr peabody?

I personally love Japanese culture & if you understand things like Seppuku & the "logic system" of old Japan the men that flew to their death deserve 100% Respect imho.

Sona Jobarteh [2017] - Kanu


Andi McLean - bass,
Sonah Jobarteh - kora, vocal,
Mouhamadou Sarr - percussion,
Derek Johnson - guitar
Westley Joseph - drums

Sona Jobarteh is the first female Kora virtuoso from a West African griot family. First in a tradition that is several centuries old, in which the Kora mastery was exclusively passed down from father to son.

Julie Fowlis - Òran an Ròin / The Song of the Seal


A traditional Gaelic song from the voice of the seal people or selkies — creatures who were said to shed their seal skin and take on the human form at certain times of the year. Thought to move between the parallel worlds of sea and land, but never truly belonging to either, selkies could change to human form at certain times and come ashore. They sometimes took human lovers while human, but usually returned to the sea. Woe be unto they who harm them or their kin.
