If recording an album specifically for early life, e.g. babies and children, is not peculiar enough, this was recorded live, and in one of the most powerful and ancient natural spaces around in South Africa.

 

The use of historic drums and bows (featuring traditional bow-player Indwe), the natural acoustics and the combination of three incredible and different musicians makes this double album the first of its kind at Rootspring Music.

Indwe is a traditional bow player and singer from the Easter Cape, James and Ronan are both percussionists with a variety of cultural influences. Ronan also plays didgeridoo. 

 

We've shot a small documentary about this amazing artwork and the philosophy behind it, as well as two live recording videos. 

Thanks to a great crew we've managed to shoot this within the three days of album recording.
