Afro-cuban salsa played on guitar. Smooth, gentle acoustic guitar melodies and jazzy chords in salsa style with hints of flamenco ornamentation and woodblock percussion keeping the syncopated salsa beat. Chilled and laid back with a sensual intensity in the guitar melodies. Like Buena Vista Social Club, perfect for an advert or documentary with Spanish/Cuban/Latin American flavour.
Improvisation on Turkish cumbus, stringed, oud-like instrument. Free-form improviation with runs, ornamentation, repetition and silent pauses, growing slightly faster and more intricate towards the end. Mysterious, intimate and sparse, Turkish and Middle Eastern sounds perfect for a documentary about the region or to accompany a vast, deserted landscape onscreen.
Arabic ney track. Intermittent ney phrases with elaborate ornamentation and an improvisatory feel, accompanied by a tense drone, anticipatory percussion and subtle snaking string parts. Mysterious, tense and thoughtful, an unsettling build, powerful background music for a documentary set in the Arab world.
Version available without percussion.
Oud versions available.
Spanish guitar instrumental with cajon and flute. Melancholy melody played on guitar with subtle percussion, ornamented flute joins on melody. Guitar break with Flamenco-like hand claps. Sparse guitar section joined by subtle shaker. Romantic, passionate and slightly desolate, a delicate dance, the perfect accompaniment to an onscreen love story set in the summer heat of Andalusia.
