Product Description

Ancient, scary Finnish runo songs surrounded by mesmerising nets of sound woven from chiming electric zither, heart-rendingly voice-like Armenian duduk, growling bass clarinet, silvery kantele and the rippling harmonics of fujara. SANS is the quartet of multi-instrumentalist Andrew Cronshaw (electric zither, fujara, marovantele, kantele etc), the great Finnish singer Sanna Kurki-Suonio, multi-instrumentalist Ian Blake on bass clarinet and soprano sax, and Tigran Aleksanyan, Armenian master of the duduk. Together they made Andrew Cronshaw's 2011 CD, "The Unbroken Surface of Snow", which spent three months in the top 10 of the European world music airplay chart. SANS formed as a result, and since then has been touring in Finland, Croatia, Australia, Belgium and the UK. This CD comprises live recordings, with all the richness and quality of studio recordings, made on the Dec 2013 tour in Flanders. The band draws deeply on its members' different but remarkably compatible traditions: the ancient Karelian songs that became Finland's epic Kalevala and the sweeping melodies of Armenia and British folk-song. With a unique instrumental combination they make a genuinely new music of extraordinary beauty and fluidity. Kurki-Suonio's ancient, scary Finnish runo songs are surrounded by mesmerising nets of sound woven from chiming electric zithers, heart-rendingly voice-like Armenian duduk, growling bass clarinet, silvery kantele and the rippling harmonics of fujara. "Kurki-Suonio's voice is elemental, summoning mythological beings in a way that has you looking over your shoulder long after the song has ceased." Canberra Times
