Product description

Carnival Band - Hoi Polloi - Cd

Amazon.co.uk

The Carnival Band like to think of themselves as "Henry VIII's rock 'n' roll band", a sobriquet that neatly describes their approach to Hoi Polloi, a whirlwind trip around a variety of traditional dance music from around the world played with an infectious sense of fun. The theme of the album--hence the title--is "music of the common people", which allows for considerable latitude in the band's selection of dance numbers. They happily resurrect Renaissance tunes from Praetorius and Playford with a devil-may-care approach to authenticity that probably makes the music sound more like it was originally conceived than any scholarly reconstruction. Elsewhere, they think nothing of adding a reggae lilt to a Macedonian folksong or, conversely, playing a bossanova on shawms and curtals. If this musical world tour around so many different styles seems a little disorientating at first, it's also refreshingly original. --Mark Walker
