Album Notes
"Each of the 14 instrumental tunes here is a thing of breathtaking beauty... seductive from the first note to the last."
- Seven Days - Burlington, VT

One of the "Top 10 Vermont CDs of 2003".
- Burlington Free Press & Seven Days

"The Green Vine ... is among the finest New England-connected albums of 2003."
- New England Music Scrapbook

"An instrumental collage of far-away places, sunny exuberance, and quiet introspection."
-Portsmouth Times

35th Parallel's name is inspired by the latitudinal line running through the regions from which they draw their music: the Middle East, North India, North Africa, the Mediterranean, and the United States.

With primary instrumentation of Middle Eastern oud and Indian tabla, 35th Parallel also finds its voice in a wide range of instruments including bouzouki, acoustic guitar, jaw harp, didjeridoo, and assorted percussion. The use of looping devices and other technology introduces a diversity of sonic textures into their live performances and provides a backdrop for the group's musical explorations.

35th Parallel performs throughout the Northeastern United States, presenting concerts, lecture/demonstrations, and participating in school artist-in-residence programs.

Their first album, The Green Vine, was released in October of 2003.

Mac Ritchey - oud, electric oud, bouzouki, acoustic guitar, didjeridoo, ambiosmic soundscapes, gongs

Gabe Halberg - tabla, pakhawaj, tar, percussion, gongs, tamboura, sonicare

Great CD
If your into instrumental world music this is a CD you should enjoy. 35th parallel creates a sound I just don't hear from anyone else. Well produced and they play extermely well together.

I hope I get to see a show sometime soon.

Edward Burke, World MD WWPV 88.7-FM

most incredible mixture of sounds I have ever heard!

If you're a fan of unique instruments and improv jazz, then this album will satisfy your thirst for exellent world jazz fusion. Mac is a studio genious at recording different stringed folk instruments and looping them with ethereal atmospherics-very innovative and very cool. Gabe is a whiz on all things percussion and spices up every track on the album (I especially enjoy the beats of his tar on "Lunar", my favorite track). Other good tracks are Mac's oud solo, "Crabwalk Often", "Folk Tune", "Nagma" and "Armenian Wedding Song". This album is a refeshing break from all those obnoxious guitar, bass and drum set albums out there. Pick this one up and suport not only live music but also world fusion.
