topher

My sister loaned me this cd today, and I’ve listened to it 3 times so far today.  Sindh is quite simply Gypsy music, which is anything but simple.  The music has elements of celtic, middle eastern, and eastern European woven carefully throughout.

There are no vocals, and only two primary instrumentalists.  They play a very wide variety of stringed instruments, ranging from guitar to sitara, to fiddle, with a little bit of penny whistle thrown in.  There’s a third guy who plays bass and percussion occasionally, but not on every song.

At times it’s quick and dance-like, and at other times slow and contemplative.  It’s always outside typical American music however, and if you enjoy smart, quality, non-mainstream music, this’ll work for ya.  Friends know where to find samples.

    Glad you liked the button. πŸ™‚
