This seven piece ensemble, delicately blends instrumentation from across the globe in a uniquely American context. The uncommon use of the hammered dulcimer, melodically leads many of the group’s pieces, followed by the resonance of various acoustic instruments and a brooding foundation of heavy percussion. Layers of orchestral strings and sparse vocals create a cinematic appeal to the otherwise raw expression of musical compositions.
