This ambitious project brings together the most incredible vocal traditions. This amalgamation - not exactly a fusion, since each tradition is still perfectly recognisable - showcases Albanian iso-polyphony with its plangent quality, the cantu a tenore of the Sardinian countryside, Beko blues singing of southern Madagascar, Finnish yoik and rune singing and the Belgian récit chanté. By working on traditional songs from their own background, these talentend musicians created an unprecedented performance. From the Albanian bourdon to the joddle from Madagascar... Alongside deep emotion and daring combinations, experience uplifting and humour-filled dance music in a performance that is never boring.
