They blend vocals, octave-mandolin, fiddles, viola, flutes, guitar, bass and percussion to create a pan-cultural experience. The band invites the audience to connect to a sound that is simultaneously new and familiar.

Kendálin is the inspiration of composer and musician Shawn Orpinela. Shawn's passion for exploring different folk traditions and playing with rhythm and texture creates this complex and inspiring music.

Really interesting, complex music
I love this album. There's a variety of instrumentalists and vocalists, so each song has a really strong identity. "Flicker" is an instrumental masterpiece, with great Celtic/Turkish elements - very evocative. "Mairi's Wedding" starts with an americana roots feel, and the vocal harmonies are spot on. There's a lot here to like.
