Here’s a very short video, since tonight is one of the shortest nights in the year, as a sneak sound from the upcoming album.
Simone made this video at the sun dawn last April while travelling in the Lebanese countryside. She got the idea that some drums could give this short sequence a ceremonial atmosphere.
The track itself is a bonus version of a tune’s intro called an dezertour, the story of a young man killed because he deserted the army. The rhythm is made by Davul (percution commonly used in the Balkans, Turkey, Iran, Iraq… find out more here) and Darbuka sounds. Then yesterday we added some voices, without really having any plans ahead and we like pretty much the result, it kind of reminds us of Albanian polyphonies.
