Fayna Olesich, Watalya Andreykoviets, Heema Doroshevich, Tatiana Fedorova - BYELORUSSIA: Harvest Song
This international collection presents songs from Africa, Asia, Europe, Oceania, and the Caribbean invoking and honoring the natural world. Musical interpretations of our earth range from poetic allusions to life in the Cuban countryside, to explicit descriptions of a Vanuatu coastline, to imitations of the wind on a Japanese flute. The recording also includes songs to accompany dancing, swimming, fishing, grain harvesting, picking flowers for lovers, and artificially inseminating the date palm tree.
