Barefoot in the Sky

Barefoot in the Sky is a fusion of ancient and contemporary; rhythmic, melodic and harmonic, organic and electronic, choral and tribal and more. It traverses many moods that could embody five albums rather than just this one. Its genre title could be ‘ambient space-world jazz’.

Most of the album has been created with organic voice and percussion, including 6 part harmonic harmonies on ‘Night Sky’. It features soundscape singer Linda Laasi’s astonishing solo on ‘If I Were the Sky’ and Christopher Young’s evocative woodwind playing on ‘Night Sky’ and ‘A Shaman’s Odyssey’, David Jones’ musicality and instrumental range and Dean Frenkel’s traditional and contemporary throat singing.

Artist

Dean Frenkel

Dean Frenkel combines the ancient Tibetan technique with modern compositions, creating a unique hybrid musical form. He used his throat singing technique to smash the world record for singing a continuous note.
