"Pure beauty through simplicity" Robert Plant
A first for the Kalamazoo...
Robin and Bina work together so well because they create a perfect balance of voices drawing on an exotic mix of Celtic Indian and Old Timey roots.
Incredible String Band legend Robin returns to the Klub - and this time he's bringing his wife Bina. It is a combination that has had critics reaching for the superlatives...."enchanting"..."magical". .."spellbinding."
Robin plays the Celtic harp, Bina the bowed psaltery (that's a kind of zither) and together they achieve what Robert Plant described as "pure beauty through simplicity." The duo draw on an "exotic mix" (as Robin calls it) - Celtic, Indian and old timey roots. A unique
form of musical creativity.
Indian influence comes from East African-born British Asian Bina, a fine performer in her own right and an accomplished singer and multi-instrumentalist. Their music is original, traditional, visionary and spiritual - endorsed by no lesser figure than former Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Rowan Williams himself. His verdict: "superb."
