Get in Step with music

17th February 2006 at 00:00
Music that creates richness out of simplicity; music that lifts the spirit with its verve, inventiveness and heart-catching beauty; music that most of us will never have heard before. Songs from the Steppes is a wonderful compilation of recordings of contemporary musicians who draw on the nomadic and shamanistic traditions of ancient Kazakhstan. It demonstrates the extraordinarily varied vocal skills of singers who perform folk songs, the dexterity of players who use the horsehair fiddle, mouth-harp and zither and the stunning precocity of a 13-year-old girl on the lute. It costs pound;9.99 from Topic Records.
