Thanks so much to lovefiercely for this music recommendation (on the sank•tuary forum)... songs of water experimental/folk/dance from deep in the North Carolina woods... kind of "hip-hillbilly"
North Carolina-based group Songs of Water has emerged from the South East with a sound both ancient and modern in an inventive fusion. This six piece sextet, composed primarily of instrumental music, harbors a wide variety of cultural and stylistic influences. The uncommon use of the Appalachian folk instrument, the hammered dulcimer, melodically leads many of the group’s pieces, followed by the resonance of various acoustic instruments and a brooding foundation of heavy percussion.I have to say I love... it has resonances of the Afro-Celt-Sound System and Sigur Ros but completely different at the same time... swirling, piercing, deep, entrancing, awesome. You have to go have a listen!
