Album info

Compilation and notes by Ian Nagoski. Includes music from Constantinople, Milano, Bucharest, Uttar Pradesh, Armenia, Sunda, Thrace, Jamaica, Serbia, Cairo, Huilotita, Seville, Hue, Aleppo, the Carpathians, a Zuni reservation, and more. Full notes, Black Mirror-style, opening with the quote from Gail Holst-Warhaft: "The role of the spiritual intermediary, like the polyphonic character of the lament, affords both license and protection to the individual. The dead may themselves lament through their intermediaries."
