This month's download is a relatively new piece, introduced into our repertoire last summer. Mac composed this as a kind of hybrid experiment, combining elements of an Irish jig with a Turkish longa — two popular musical forms found in rather geographically separate cultures.
A spritely little tune played on oud and tabla, the piece was quickly named once Mac heard his son mention some classmates from school.
Fittingly, this recording is from a family show we performed recently at the Yoga Mountain Center in Montpelier VT. You may hear the kids having fun in the background. Enjoy!
