SONGS FOR LEENA - Improvisations on the Hopi Long Flute - Gary Stroutsos

'Songs for Leena: Improvisations on the Hopi Long Flute' by internationally renowned flautist Gary Stroutsos releases 22nd October 2021 through ARC Music. 'Songs for Leena' is a truly unique piece. In genesis, in production, and as a prologue to the more remarkable story it seeks to complete. A testament to the artist's skill, the album was recorded in one take in a Seattle studio. Stroutsos' intuitive and nuanced performance releases the haunting, plaintive sounds almost unheard in millennia – the ethereal tones of the Hopi long flute.

AADO - Senegalese Kora - Kadialy Kouyate

In Senegalese society, aado stands for moral customs and values. In this album, Kadialy Kouyate’s enchanting music touches on those principles and reflects on Mandinka culture. As a musician and songwriter born into the great line of Kouyate Griot in Southern Senegal, Kadialy’s mesmerising kora playing embraces the art of storytelling, via the 21-stringed kora, and draws on heritage to inspire new, uplifting compositions.
