This global trio blends clarinets, Indian percussion, Estonian guitar, electronic rhythms, and bird song. The marsh warbler (or "Soo-roolind" in Estonian) does something no other bird is known to do. On its winter travels, it learns the songs of African birds and takes them back to its summer breeding grounds in Northern Europe and sings them one after another, with relentless complexity, for all to hear. In the same way, we hope our pancultural improvised grooves, from Estonia to America, from West to East, from acoustic to electronic, may celebrate the full world of sound one trio can produce, in various meetings of twos and threes. Driving tabla and udu rhythms mix with atmospheric guitar and swirling clarinet through subtle digital effects and bird sounds.
