Music of the Month
For a contribution of 20.00 a month (28.00 outside of the US), I'll be sending you a recording from somewhere interesting, each and every month. You will receive a CD in the mail, and regular monthly subcribers will also get a bonus CD now and then.

Our November 2020 selection for Music of the Month La Crapaude Gote d’Èwe
Four women, four impish voices.
Walloon polyphony, elegant and edgy.
Raw percussion made of sticks, twigs and beams.
For their second album Gote d’Èwe, the crapôdes - Charlotte Haag, Sabine Lambot, Pascale Sepulchre, Marie Vander Elst - are accompanied by the percussionist Max Charue. Together they dive into the laments and stories of the people of Wallonia. Their arrangements are inspired by baroque music as much as by modern music. Their styles mingle and collide together in echoes of Björk or Arvo Pärt. It's carefully crafted, as the musicians revive a unique tradition of songs which has almost disappeared into oblivion in the last two generations.
