Thee, Stranded Horse - Churning Strides

Thee, Stranded Horse is Normandy's Yann Tambour, a talented young musician who specializes in the kora and the guitar. His debut release, 'Churning Strides' showcases his versatile playing styles, as well as his gifted and genuine voice (think somewhere between Aaron Weiss' subdued moments and Devendra Banhart, maybe)...

Really choice album, def recommend it. Eases you into its comforting pace then capsizes into a cathartic-wave during middle-mark "Swaying Eel". Plus the nylon stringed acoustic-guitar/kora combination is really interesting.
Awesome stuff.

His work with the kora is really beautiful stuff. Might have to share some of his prior project later ('Encre'), less song-structured but interesting stuff too.
