LA-013 The Sigh of Silver Strings from Suvannabhumi
During the 1800s, various Western stringed instruments came to Burma by means of traders, explorers, and colonizers. These instruments - the acoustic slide guitar, mandolin, banjo, violin, and zither - were quickly and ingeniously adapted to the intricacies of Burmese music. The music draws from Burma’s rich vocal tradition, and the centuries-old royal repertoire of the Burmese harp and xylophone. Recorded and produced by Rick Heizman.
Comes with insert with title translations. Limited edition of 500, now sold out!
