Flamenco and yoik have much in common. With flamenco and yoik you evoke moods, memories and express feelings. Both give voice to experiences and moments that come of heart and soul, a wailing - the fundamental scream. The history of yoik and flamenco reminds of each other, both have been suppressed and some times even forbidden. ?In this release you will hear the melancholy and sensitive sound of yoik meet the flamencos shout over the crying injustice of life, performed with passion and backed up by strong and vivid guitars and tablas. All with spirit and drive and a distinctive joy of life.
