Free Download - Huun Huur Tu & Carmen Rizzo - Saryglarlar Maidens from the album Eternity
Buy from Amazon or iTunes
I've been working with the talented musician/producer, Carmen Rizzo for many years now. From his production work with Ekova to the two groups signed to Six Degrees that he has been involved with, Niyaz and now Lal Meri, Carmen is so good at what he does that one could be forgiven for taking the high quality of his work almost for granted. Perhaps this is why I was completely blind sided by the power and the beauty of his latest project, a collaboration with the Tuvan group Huun Huur Tu. Carmen had kindly sent me an early, advance CD of the project which I slipped into the CD player in my kitchen, one night while making dinner. Suddenly the room was awash in lush electronics, beautiful string arrangements and those incredible voices that defy any notions that you might have of what a human voice SHOULD be capable of. This is fusion music at it's most creative- one of those rare projects where different cultures beautifully collide, forming something totally new and dazzling. Check out the free track that Carmen has generously let us share with you today and then make sure to make this gem a part of your collection.
