The Wind Rose
The new album by Arianna Savall, Petter U. Johansen and her ensemble Hirundo Maris move musically and sonically somewhere between early music and Celtic Folk, with echoes of ethereal Renaissance music to earthy bluegrass moments. The album is a homage to the sea, oceans and coasts, and an ode to the sailors and travellers of old and new times, to their lives, hopes and dreams. The compass rose points in all directions and thus includes all cultures, countries and places of this world. At the same time it is a symbol for the inner journey of the human soul. Thus the songs on this album sing of the inner and outer journeys that connect people through wide waters, currents and winds.
