Astrid Zeman - Counting Sheep     World, Atmospheric, Ambience, Acoustic 26/11/2015
Wistful soprano melodies floating above richly layered strings and beats. Surrealist, ambient soundscapes.
This piece was recorded using only guitar and voice. No other instruments or electronic sounds were added. I strum, pluck, knock and tap the guitar, rap knuckles against the wooden body, scratch nails along the strings, even sing into the cavity to produce an ethereal choral effect.

MUSIC DIRECTOR PICK: Stephen Goodhew, FBi Radio, Sydney (NSW)

There are many languages in Afghanistan and this song is in Dari. Translated, its title means ‘I am not with you’ which is a lighthearted song from a woman playing the daira which is a large shallow drum like a tambourine.

Anna Salleh - Noites Cariocas     World, Jazz, Acoustic 02/11/2016
From honey-smooth bossa nova and ballads, and irrepressible samba, to playful swing, cool jazz and enchanting choro, singer/guitarist Anna Salleh channels songs of beauty, sorrow, irreverence and joy.
Noites Cariocas (pronounced 'noichez kah-ree-oh-cahs') means 'Rio Nights' and is in the choro style. This form of music from Rio de Janeiro was originally instrumental but this song is set to almost untranslatable Portuguese lyrics that touch on themes of sleepless nights from a vexed relationship. Call it 'Brazilian vocalese'!

Other tracks by Anna Salleh:  Caravan  -  Manhã de Carnaval/Black Orpheus
