Rather than just cherry pick the most exciting elements of Balkan music for their own exciting Eastern-sounding oeurve, New Mexico duo A Hawk & a Hacksaw are also helping promote their influences. They’ll be releasing Bahriye Çiftetellisi by Turkish clarinet maestro Cüneyt Sepetçi and his Orchestra Dolapdere on LM Dupli-cation, June 25.
Following up last month’s You Have Already Gone to the Other World, begun as a live soundtrack to Soviet film director, Sergei Paradjanov, Jeremy Barnes and Heather Trost have quite a palate and Sepetçi is just another great example.**
