Simendra Madhyam (Scarlet Dawn)

Michael Robinson

About this work:
This music inhabits a ritualistic realm with ominous voices and animal cries. A sitar timbre weaves through the aural maze together with tabla and African udu. The opening melody is sounded by a wide variety of musical timbres from Korea, Syria, Punjab, Ecuador, Java and Gambia. -Michael Robinson March 1998 © 1998 by Michael Robinson All rights reserved ------------------------------------------------------------------------ BACK
