Product Description

The Burnt Earth Ensemble performs music exclusively on ceramic musical instruments. This CD captures many facets of the sounds of clay in an evocative collection of the ensemble’s original music, with influences drawn from jazz, medieval, Celtic, African and Native American styles. From the haunting, ethereal flute melodies of “Pangea” to the raucous fiddle and drums of “Siberian Hoedown”, the Burnt Earth ensemble coaxes imaginative sounds and heart-felt music from the material of the Earth herself. The ensemble’s array of clay instruments ranges from the ordinary to the exotic, including flutes, ocarinas, fiddles, doumbeks, udu drums, didjeridus, nose flutes, and globular horns.
