So many different cultural elements in this, oh my.. It feels like travelling between all those different places I've been to. Wonderful, thank you RP as always..
Fabulously delicious treat for the ears.

Many years ago we heard her singing and playing on an ancient small organillo in the streets of Toledo with a lot of people listening. We bought some CDs then.
It's like always, Bill, you're playing out of my playlists, beside the newies for me, thanks!




Cool story. Thank You for sharing it.  I wish I could have been there too!

SUPERB!  I never heard of her before  That is why we come here.   Thanx RP!   
Is that a clarinet I hear?

Compelling.  Simple.  Hard to pin down. A mi me gusta. 
Oboe and clarinet? wonderful
Gorgeous
The clarinet and accordion make it sound very Celtic... but with a twist - several twists, actually! 
That's when the Wikipedia bit on the side comes in handy: so there's a woman from Madrid who studied traditional Swedish instruments and recorded an album that features instruments from...everywhere!
Look at that list: nyckelharpa (Sweden), Celtic harp, psaltery (medieval - Greek origin), santur (Iranian dulcimer), oud, medieval lute, tar (Persian string instrument), Turkish ney (a flute), kaval (another flute used in the Balkans), bagpipe, Spanish guitarrillo, hurdy-gurdy (Spanish/French/Celtic/Hungarian) and Greek lyra!
Wonderful!
Great following Tusk!! Tempo and Rhythmically!
What a wonderful instrument discovery! Love the sound and the vibe.

I think that's the hurdy gurdy giving you that impression. 

[Edit: my bad, evidently that's a nyckelharpa, not a hurdy gurdy. Similar sounds though!]
Enjoying the vibe of this.  Thank you Bill.  Nice to hear some new selections!
very fresh and a nice surprise  between other known songs. thanks bill.
