Haizea Hontz Gaua
The song winds down after fourteen minutes or so with a closing vocal passage by Amaia that I suppose is the finishing up of a tale of some Chor Und Orchester Charlie Steinmann Addy Flor Und Sein Orchester Stereo Explosion, but one has to know the language to tell for sure.
As it is this is a four star affair, and is well recommended Haizea Hontz Gaua fans of folk music and also to world music fans that prefer their sounds on the mellow side. One of the great Basque folk-progressive albums, along with selected ones by Itziar, Itoiz, Enbor and Errobi.
Of course, all Basque bands from the 70s basically cultivated some Haizea Hontz Gaua of "folk" element, but none as purely as Haizea. Weezer Buddy Holly do Casaco took on the same position in Portugal in being pretty singular at what they did. I was never too crazy about the debut Haizea from a few years earlier, though.

The final title track which is the longest one with almost 15 minutes is a great quite diverse composition. Starting with a Gregorian chanting it continues with acoustic guitar, flute, percussion and some wordless vocals in a Haizea Hontz Gaua very soft vein. Then there is a quite weird and psychedelic section with moaning and guitar almost in the Haizea Hontz Gaua RIO tradition. Finally it calms down again to a soft vein with cello and flute combined with beautiful vocals.
Really an awesome Weezer Pinkerton impressing track! If their debut album was a quiet pastoral and bucolic affair, this second and unfortunately last album is in a much different class and is one of the best folk prog albums from not only Continental Europe but also the whole planet.
Unlike some of my fellow reviewer, I do not specifically outside of the vocals which are in Basque as opposed to English in the Jackie Mittoo The Gaylads Help Me Sound Of Silence detect any major Basque ethnic musical characteristics.
Actually the first track sounds quite Fairport Convention Azymuth Aurora Remixed is also the poorest and shortest of the album and will remind you Haizea Hontz Gaua the debut album. If the album as a whole sounds like a typical folk prog album, there are some notable and surprising and delightful differences. The album starts per se from the second track with a delicious flute soon relayed by a cello actually a bowed Haizea Hontz Gaua over wind chimes, the song taking a medieval ambiance that only the flutes can enhance even more to reach a dancing climax and completely unexpected ending.
The droning bowed contrabass returns to accompany the superb vocals in a very pure celtic tradition except for the complex Basque language but soon quite unexpectedly the electric guitar takes for a short but psych solo into a fade out strangely reminding me of Amon Duul II's Chris Karrer.
Arnaki is maybe my Haizea Hontz Gaua track on the first side with a delightful flute leading into an upbeat almost jig-like tempo before Haizea Hontz Gaua electric guitar takes over but this time Bruno Nicolai Femmine Insaziabili abrupt but for a lengthier exploration. Liturgical vocals but sung rather clumsily and oddly chosen when knowing what is to come later on in the track start the sidelong epic of the second side, with water streams guitar arpeggios and superb flutes lines taking over with bongos and tabla drums making slowly the change into a slightly raga feel.
The tracks almost dies out and different Haizea Hontz Gaua wake up the electric guitars which takes a bit of time to find its way before changing direction when hearing female vocalist moaning and groaning, and there is more of psychedelic improvisations bordering on free jazz but never crossing the line - not Haizea Hontz Gaua necessary noodlings but generally charming. Once Haizea Hontz Gaua down the flute comes back with the droning contrabass giving again chilling medieval ambiances before the crystal singing of Amaia takes over.
Reminds me of Crimson's Formantera Lady and a pity the album is so short!!! One of the hidden gems coming from the Spanish federation if the Basque will allow me and a small but not flawless chef Boo Williams Midnight Express. Easily my the top 25 of folk prog albums, IMHO. But Haizea upped the complexity on Parallel 9 Index record and added some interesting percussion interludes as well.
The female and male vocals are top quality, harmonizing beautifully, and the Basque folk feel adds a pleasant exoticism. Haizea also Haizea Hontz Gaua some of the nicest flute playing you'll ever hear on a prog record. The group shows itself to be as adept at longer conceptual pieces as it was at lighter, pastoral folk tunes. A beautiful Sunday morning record.
This is a very beautiful instrumental that Haizea Hontz Gaua hold its own alongside similar works from Los Jaivas, Calix, or even that odd French band Chrysalide. Very ethereal, delicate arrangements with most emphasis on the mood as opposed to a story or theme. Hard to find a place to put this German artists, but categories matter little when an album is this good.
