Dúo del Sol
Classical / Folk / Gypsy // By AJ / 3 October, 2013
I feel I may sound like a bit of a tosser when trying to describe this song and group. Not because the music is pretentious (far from it), but because the compositions are so tonally rich and captivating that-oh look, I’ve started already. Dangit! Oh well, steer into the skid, as they say.
This is superb. Intricately performed with sparse instrumentation, but deeply expressive at the same time. It’s whimsical and consistently interesting, which is certainly high praise for most instrumental pieces. Although there’s more of a gypsy overtone to this, it sort of reminds me of Christophe Heral’s work on the Rayman Origins soundtrack.
