Sinikka Langeland - Starflowers (2007)

“Starflowers” is a fascinating ECM debut for Norwegian vocalist and kantele player Sinikka Langeland. A folk singer from the forest lands near the Swedish border, Langeland explores in her work the relationship between man and nature. On this disc she sets verse of lumberjack-poet Hans Børli (1918-89), with help from an outstanding ensemble including trumpeter Arve Henriksen, saxophonist Trygve Seim, bassist Anders Jormin and percussionist Markku Ounaskari. Altogether: a marvellous confluence of folk music, sung poetry and Nordic improvisation brilliantly marshalled in Manfred Eicher’s production.
Part1 & Part2

Sinikka Langeland: vocal, kantele
Arve Henriksen: trumpet
Trygve Seim: tenor and soprano saxophones
Anders Jormin: double-bass
Markku Ounaskari: percussion

Like what you hear, buy it! And support the artists that really need it.

damn! what is it? i'm guessing months of darkness.

this is a some fine music, but i made the mistake of reading the translated lyrics (for the last time). until they're cleared from memory i won't be listening around sharp objects or while walking near steep precipices.

haven't listened to the whole thing yet, but love the trumpet solo on cut two, and love the sound of the kantele which i had never heard, or heard of, until now.

big thanks for the music.

should a suicide note result, no worries, i won't mention you
