Lady of Green Silences

April 10, 2020

Here’s a new tune from Thousand Yard Prayer.

It uses medieval and middle eastern instruments with a subtle hint of bass electronica. Unusually for us, there is no drum kit – it’s all frame drums and there is no bassline as such.

The rhythm is Arabian, called Wahida, and the maqam (musical scale) used is also Arabian and is called Maqam Shehnaz. We break all rules of how one is supposed to use these things, however.
