various: the sigh of silver strings from suvannabhumi

During the 1800s, various Western stringed instruments came to Burma by means of traders, explorers, and colonizers. These instruments -- the acoustic slide guitar, mandolin, banjo, violin, and zither -- were quickly and ingeniously adapted to the intricacies of Burmese music. The music draws from Burma's rich vocal tradition, and the centuries-old royal repertoire of the Burmese harp and xylophone. Recorded and produced by Rick Heizman. Limited edition of 500 copies." Includes 8-page black & white booklet with track notes and photos.
