FEATURES FOR THE WEEK
LIFE IN BALANCE: SPINNING BOWLS
Tibetan singing bowls have been with us for a long time. Life
In Balance is a Pittsburgh-based duo that trades the metal bowls
for quartz crystal bowls and mixes them with flutes and electronics.
Life in Balance are Steve & Ami Sciulli: Steve handles the
flutes and electronics, while Amy uses the bowls you won't find
in any kitchen. Their music ranges from deep meditative drones
to the electronica dance grooves of their latest CD, STAR. Life
in Balance shows us the way.
LOREENA MCKENNITT: A JOURNEY TO SOUND & SOUL
Loreena McKennitt is steeped in the story-telling traditions of
folk music, the poetry of Tennyson and W.B. Yeats, and a love
of the Celtic harp. She launched her career in 1985 when she released
a cassette of her songs called ELEMENTAL. Now nearly two decades
along, she's an international artist cited by musicians across
the world stage as an influence. It's been 5 years since McKennitt
made an album, but her entire catalog has recently been re-issued.
We look back with Loreena McKennitt on a music that tracks from
Canada to Ireland to Morocco and beyond.
KAKI KING'S STRINGS
Her guitar is almost bigger than she is, but Kaki King makes you
forget her size when she starts playing her six strings. She created
a sensation last year with her debut album, EVERYBODY LOVES YOU
(Velour). She returns with a new CD, LEGS TO MAKE US LONGER (Epic),
that shows an evolution in her already formidable skills. Kaki
King talks about big changes in her music in a short time, and
reveals more of her eclectic background which includes electric
guitar and lap steel guitar.
