Ande Somby w/ Chris Watson – Yoiking With The Winged Ones LP

Ande Somby, is a yoiker (someone who yoiks.) A yoik, according to indigenous Finno-Ugric oral traditional, is one of the longest living musical traditions in Europe. Somby’s yoiks, or songs, are collected here amidst the birds and mountain passages of the Arctic with the help of field recorder extraordinaire Chris Watson. The movements on the A sides are all originals, while the B side contains a traditional arrangement. Really interesting stuff and something a little different.
