More About Today's Music

This is from a wonderful album that explores the songs of top of the world.  At the northern most regions of human habitation, communities tend to have a closer to tie to each other, even though in concept, they would appear to be completely different societies, from different continents and completely different ethnicities.  The fact is, that at the top of the world (at least for now, since climate change is really challenging all of the communities) humans all have to share similar lifestyles in order to survive in such conditions.  I love this track! It features Inuit throat singing (see video below) in a highly stylized, but still traditional way.  For more about the late French composer and musician Hector Zazou, please click here.  RIP Bro!!
