A collection of mesmerizing performances from the four corners of the world played on stringed instruments. Featuring fiddles, shamisen, charango, Paraguyan harp, Indian vina, Lebanese oud, Persian violin, Vietnamese moon guitar, and more. As the name of the label – Dust To Digital – suggests, these recordings date back to as early as 1920. They have been unearthed and lovingly remastered and pressed to vinyl. The simplicity of the concept transfers into a deeply effective listen. The versatility of the strings comes to the fore and there is a meditative quality to playing the record through.
