I am wildly fascinated by the melding of sounds, forms, & instruments across geographic & cultural borders. Mike Gangloff has paired the well known sounds of Appalachian folk with the less known (at least in American music) shruti box, an Indian drone instrument. The match, while unlikely, is sublime. What results is something at once familiar and hauntingly, beautifully unknown. This listening experience is not to be missed.
Favorite track: Queen Of The Earth, Child Of The Skies.
