The discovery by Alryck of an ancient lyre in Morocco started us off doing more song based stuff. Chris restored some damage, and we got hooked on the sound. We believe it's a Litungu, a relative of the Kora from Kenya, though they are used all over Africa , like Mali where we think it's called a 'Gau'.
We put it together with the Santour - a traditional Persian style of hammered dulcimer, and the combination. along with sundry guitars, waterphone, celtic harp, hang drum, mandolin and harmonium, gives us a pretty unique sound.
