Notes and Editorial Reviews

There is no argument: the world is small...particularly when it comes to the Small World Project where each player finds their place playing incredibly amazing music with the use of small instruments like the charango, strumstick and ukulele, accompanied by mini-percussion instruments including cajoncito, kanjira, gattam, and carillon. The only instrument that is not subject to this 'small' rule is the bass - which balances this small world with its contrasting sound effects. Taking its expression from around the world, the music of the Small World Project vibrates with the rhythms of Brazilian samba, Chilean folklore, Andalusian flamenco. In addition we hear rhythms from Morocco, Senegal, India, and the Islands of Hawaii...even American Read more bluegrass.
