about

This piece, written by Steve Barnes, is a surprise package that sounds distinctly of another era, somewhat redolent of the renaissance. His quizzical title refers to a menu item he came across whilst dining in a provincial Chinese restaurant. Ever the collector of humorous anecdotes, this one inevitably became a song title. The tune opens with two jaw harps in call-response mode, before the entry of guitar and tarota (a Catalan double-reed shawm) each playing the melody. Kristiina’s gorgeous vocal features a poem, again written by her mother, Lea Tabur. The subsequent solo is played by Mark on tarota and at the end, the melody is reprised on soprano sax.

about

Eastwinds Perth, Australia

Eastwinds began in 2014 when Mark Cain (reeds), Esfandiar Shahmir (ney) and Sanshi (didgeridoo) came together as a woodwind trio. We were then joined by Estonian singer, Kristiina Maalaps and today Eastwinds is a six-piece with broad influences: Estonian runo-song, classical Persian, Balkan, klezmer and contemporary jazz. All find expression in the band’s unique acoustic global sound. ... more
