The blue Infinity: Unexpected (album promo)
The blue Infinity: Unexpected (AMAR010) CD | mp3
It is hard to pigeonhole the music of The blue Infinity into any one category. The quartet embrace an array of instruments (yayli tambur, santoor, hang drum, guitar) to create ancient trance sounds that are meditative, contemplative, infused with dissonance and a joyous drive.
