Stories of the bone people occur in the myths and legends of cultures from all over the world. Although the details may vary, the story is always the same - scattered bones are collected, gathered together, and sung back into life again. Something that was almost lost to the world is preserved.
Many see the folk tradition in this light - as a preservation of the past. But in the archetypal stories, singing over the bones requires that the singer breathe their soul over the collected fragments. So in this singing, as in resurrecting folk music, something new is also added. The tracks of this album are the fragments we have collected together, whether they tell stories of home and family, myths, legends, or the bones of the land. We hope to sing the ghosts of the past into the present.
We hope you enjoy it.
