Moyindau -- Catalytic Sound


Available Formats: Digital

This album documents music of the group Moyindau captured at various live performances and informal recording sessions in 2010 and 2011. It includes two of my settings of Kazakh poetry, framed by several other compositions of mine and arrangements of popular/folk tunes from Macedonia and Tajikistan. The group features saxophonist Kevin Bene, cellist Susanna Mendlow, drummer Ryan Ptasnik, and myself as pianist and composer, plus singer Ainagul Abdikalikova on the two central tracks.

Released in: 2021
