Arianna Savall, Petter U. Johansen & Hirundo Maris: Songs of the sea, the oceans and the four winds ...
The third album of Arianna Savall, Petter Udland Johansen & Hirundo Maris on Carpe Diem Records is a musical journey along coasts and oceans, an ode to seafarers and travellers from ancient and modern times, to their lifes, hopes and dreams. The windrose points into all cardinal points, encompassing all different cultures and places on earth in its movement. At the same time, it can be a symbol for the inner travels of the human soul which may aim into all different directions and places throughout life. In this sense, the songs on this album connect inner and outer journeying through music and poetry, just as countries and people are connected through oceans, currents and winds.
