This new release is a musicological overview of harps, dulcimers, and hurdy gurdies from across Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. Gef Lucena and David Wilkins head up this project, and are heard on most of these tracks. Some of these tracks are studio recordings which boast excellent sound quality, while some are field recordings, encapsulating the authenticity of these unique and sometimes ancient instruments. The booklet features in-depth explorations of each of these string instruments, written by experts. This release is a must-see for any string player, or for any musician interested in the history of these folk instruments.
