Renaud GARCIA-FONS & Derya TURKAN - Silk Moon (CCB1019)
Silk Moon is the union of two musicians but also two instruments. Renaud Garcia-Fons and his legendary bass with 5 strings joins Derya Turkan and kemence -small violin with 3 strings that is played with a bow and has its origins in the Mediterranean orientale-. Their compositions are fed Oriental, Mediterranean and Latin influences, and their music is inspired by the lyrical expression and the deep song of the tradition of Oriental Maqam and Cante Jondo Andalou. Their two instruments, the smallest and largest of the stringed instruments, are a natural complementarity of stamps and game modes and together produce the effect of a real orchestra.
