About the recently released album
Trobairitz is a collection of original pieces, each a separate vignette transporting the listener to somewhere new. Refusing to be restricted by genre, Trobairitz is highly exploratory: it contains a Troubadour ballad, a Japanese cradle song, a musical palindrome set in the style of sacred music, a 50's/60's girl group number, a Samba dance tune, a James Bond-esque cinematic jazz piece, and much more. However, the messages underpinning the music are united by common themes - including an emphasis on resilience, appreciation for the natural world, and a resolve to be mindful of the current moment. Trobairitz seeks to capture the essence of many disparate cultures, in attempts to unearth the threads of humanity shared between us all.
