Catalog: CPS4583
Format: CD


Firmly grounded as a virtuoso of Norwegian traditional music but inspired by the music of other cultures, fiddler Annbj++rg Lien crosses musical borders as a pioneer for true "World Music." KHOOM LOY, Thai for "Paper Lanterns," is Lien's eighth solo album and explores a broad spectrum of traditions ranging from her traditional Norwegian folk to Irish and Asian music, with jazz and rock accents that at times create an Indian feel. "Lien's spectral fiddling proves hauntingly absorbing as it introduces the past to the future." -The Washington Post
