So Much More
Moira Smiley's music is not mere "folk." And yet she can take the simplest folksong and turn it into something like you've never heard before. In all her work, there's an element of "otherness" and mystery. "Chilly Winds" at first seems like a infectious folk melody but then you come to a perky cello and vocal line that you want to hear go on and on. The traditional Bulgarian song, "Dve Nevesti" is absolutely transcendent – with the lovely and bizarre vocal ostinato that is riveting! There is a surprise at every turn with this music and you almost come to expect them. A song starts and you know something unusual and delightful will happen, but you just don't know when. The musical ingenuity makes you almost forget the stunning vocal, instrumental and recording production values. What a gem.
