Interpreter: Albert Kuvezin & Yat-Kha
Label: Yat Kha Recordings
Location: Tuva

Yat-Kha (who have now morphed into an all-British line-up) and their mainman Albert Kuvezin turn their attentions towards those unpredictable bedfellows Japanese poetry and the Scottish highlands. His inimitable low growl is supported by a wealth of equally eclectic instrumentation and idiosyncratic performance, recorded on the remote Scottish island of Jura.
