Zomorud

Instrumental fusion of Greek, Turkish and Irish folk musics. Unpredictable time signatures, non-Western scales and rolling melodic phrases played on Cretan lyra and Middle Eastern saz, joined by violin and subtle percussion. Murky and intricate, growing in speed and intensity throughout. Sombre yet determined, delivered with passionate vehemence, perfect music for a global documentary or Film/TV scene representing Turkish or Middle Eastern culture.

La Peru

Peruvian instrumental with charango and cajón. Stringed, guitar-like charango plays a melancholy melodic hook, while a second charango provides intricate accompaniment. Gentle percussion from cajón gives a subtle rhythmic flavour while supporting the melody. Emotional, passionate yet quiet and restrained, reminiscent of Manu Chao, full of romantic anticipation to suit a sizzling onscreen lovers’ dance or for a travel documentary or advert with a Latin influence.

Charango

Charango instrumental. Delicate, beguiling repeated arpeggios grow into rhythmically strummed chords in a Spanish classical guitar style on this lute-like South American instrument.

Everybody’s Got One (Suite)

Retro TV theme tune with saxophone. A football whistle and hint of samba drums gives way to a mellow, homely piano chord sequence, with jaunty horn section, saxophone passionate soloing and a lush string build to meet the end. Comforting, positive and reassuring, like a 90s American family sitcom theme tune, cosy, retro and warm, think ‘Who’s the Boss?’ for good old-fashioned family japes.

Wild Nature

Uplifting guitar track. Guitar intro builds anticipation with repetitive, effects-laden guitar riffs. Strummed acoustic guitar chords and gentle percussion create an insistent bed, laid back electric guitar rings out on top. Hopeful, peaceful and quietly positive, guitar parts like U2’s more gently euphoric build-ups. Perfect for emotional TV drama or film scenes, when passionate feelings can no longer be denied.
