#musicmonday: La Mar Enfortuna – Pali Mou Kanis To Vari

So my copy of La Mar Enfortuna’s Conviviencia finally turned up. It’s part of the bundle of CDs I bought with my Christmas money from my sister-in-law, and had been caught up in the  backlog of snow-delayed packages.

It’s hard to equate “snow” with this music – you can feel the blazing heat of some exotic place just from listening to it. I went into a little more detail here, but it’s basically a fusion of Sephardic traditional folk and experimental rock – dissonant chimes, freeform sax and droning distorted guitars counterpoint the sweetness of the melody and Jennifer Charles’ sulky, silky vocals. This particular song is an immediate favourite, since it radically changes styles part-way through the song without losing its focus. It’s really best if you just hear it for yourself.
