Tamara Turner, CD Baby


Ex-Byrd member John York has teamed up with koto princess, Yukiko Matsuyama, in a striking and haunting album of compositions for gu zheng (Chinese zither) 12 string, vocals and instrumentals in this modern approach to cross-cultural acoustic music. With minimalistic, cyclic patterns, these pieces cast a ghostly spell over the over-stimulated mind.
