about

Translated as, The Village Waited for the New Moon, this tune was first recorded on Finnish group, Vartinna’s second album, Musta Lindu in 1989 and again on a subsequent cd, Seleniko. As US folklorist and writer Steven D. Winick explains: this “song was part of the traditional Karelian wedding. These weddings lasted four days, at the end of which the bride went to live with her new husband in his village. Often it was far away, and the bride was alone, facing a village full of strangers coming to check out the new girl”. The song is an allegory about the loneliness the bride experiences in this setting.

Eastwinds Perth, Australia

Eastwinds began in 2014 when Mark Cain (reeds), Esfandiar Shahmir (ney) and Sanshi (didgeridoo) came together as a woodwind trio.

All find expression in the band’s unique acoustic global sound. ... more
