ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Voss Malone formed in London in 2013. This is our second album.
The discovery by Alryck of an ancient lyre in Morocco started us off doing songs based around modal scales. Chris restored some damage, and we got hooked on the sound - a simple six string harp made of leather and wood proved to be a great songwriting tool.

The seller only knew it was 'African' - but research led us to believe it's a Litungu, though similar instruments are used all over Africa, including Ethiopia where it is called a Krar.

So we were very lucky to meet up with Tsegaye Lema when he was visiting London. The younger generation are taking up the Krar - but now electrified - Tsegaye gave us the beautiful bass lines on 'The Krar Song'.

We mix the African harp with the Santour - a traditional Persian style of hammered dulcimer, and the combination. along with sundry guitars, waterphone, celtic harp, hang drum, mandolin and harmonium, gives us a pretty unique sound.

There is an East European influence, so songs may be in 5 or 7 times - once described as "Hypnotic acoustic rhythms". Other tracks have an African, Kora style lilt, or may be based on an Irish slip jig, or simply a waltz.

There are songs about East London sights and sounds, childhood and living on the street, there are songs that are stories, devotional songs, angry songs and sad songs.

Enjoy!
