07 Elephants 3:32 min (This track is also on ‘Old to New’ album)
Early in 2002 following the successful reproduction of the mayophone, a tune was composed to capture its essentially new sound. The relaxed rhythm is created by hand playing on a bodhrán and crotal. Intermittent adharc is added and the mayophone takes a wild jazzy lead. The whole suggested elephants sounding off. Hence the name. Much credit is due to Rod Callan whose great ear and expertise made it happen.
