09 Black Rock 4:44 min
The title ‘Black Rock’ is inspired by the heavy rolling beat implemented on bodhrán which is enhanced by deep cronán (throat singing). This piece of music features the experimental side of the acoustic instruments. The bodhrán or single frame drum is played in a way that reveals all the power and drive of a ‘full kit’.
