Traditional Music of Notional Species Vol. II pays a return visit to the otherworldly noumenal ecosystem inside Rashad Becker's head, relaying indecipherable messages in something resembling an expressive language of psychoacoustic, cuneiform glyphs. No Rosetta Stone is required to comprehend these deeply abstract auditory tableaus; all you need is an open mind and functioning set of lugs for reception, whilst whatever counts for your sense of consciousness will fill in the gaps, and that’s where the “fun” starts.

The Laotian national instrument is the khène, typically an eighty centimeter (roughly a two and a half foot) long mouth organ constructed of seven or eight pairs of bamboo pipes that are connected with a small, hollowed-out hardwood reservoir into which air is blown. Its sound is similar to that of a violin, and it may be played as a solo instrument or to accompany singers and instrumental ensembles. The khène also occurs in a two meter (approximately six and a half foot) version, which few musicians have powerful enough lungs to master.
The khène can be heard on most of the tracks in this recording, which includes ritual music, wedding music, and songs such as "Lam Sithandone" sung by professional singers Thao and Nang Sikhone.

This CD is indeed a strange mixed bag. There are plenty of authentic traditional pieces like "Sakura", "Autumn sorrow", but there are also a number of modernized vocal numbers (rather western operatic style singing), one good Okinawan folk song, and believe it ir not, one Korean traditional song (Arirang) sung in Korean accompanied by kayagum. For some reason this good old folklore caused "geisha" fantasies in the disc compilers minds :)

A companion to the SONGS OF DEFIANCE collection, this second Michael Church-compiled record captures the transcendent beauty of Georgian three-part vocal polyphony. Sung traditionally by males, the music conveys the power, sorrow, and dignity of this troubled region, and includes hymns, ballads, children's songs, and other applications of the style.

James MacMillan travels to St Kilda to play the traditional music that was so nearly lost forever. It's an extraordinary story. Trevor Morrison was the last person alive who knew the traditional music of the tiny Scottish Island of St Kilda, the inhabitants of which were forced to evacuate the island in 1930, leaving it uninhabited. Morrison recorded the music at a care home in 2006, music that otherwise would have been lost forever. He had been taught the pieces by his piano teacher, who was originally from St Kilda. His teacher would place Trevor's hands over his own as he played in order to teach him the music. Now those haunting recordings by Morrison, who died in 2012, have been released alongside orchestral arrangements of the music by composers including James MacMillan (who also conducts on the album), Craig Armstrong, Rebecca Dale, Francis Macdonald and Christopher Duncan. In the video below, James MacMillan travels – with a piano! – to St Kilda to play this precious music.

After two millennia under the Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman empires, not to mention musical invasions from the West, what remains of Greece’s early musical heritage? What can be called “Greek”? Although the origins of musical genres and systems identified with the country are often confused, misunderstood, and mislabeled, this 1970 collection provides fourteen vivid examples of vocal and instrumental music from mountain and island regions that have maintained the closest ties to ancient tradition.
