More Info

"Continuing Sub Rosa's exploration of the undiscovered regions of world music, 'Tzotziles' concentrates on a community in Mexico of the same name and works as a study of this group of people. The disc is almost like a historical aural document, something we can listen to and get a real look into a community and how it works, whether it's the day of the dead (which is here in full) to prayers and folk music. The music itself ranges from Celtic-sounding folk to unusual tribal drumming, flute bleats and trumpet squelches - at times sounding like a lost Rune Grammofon album! It's not going to be for everyone but if you're interested in the outer reaches of world music, music that really is alien, then look no further." [Boomkat]
