"NATIVE TONGUE " by YURT (Cassette Tape + Mp3) – ECHOMANCY TAPE VOL.

"Native Tongue" is comprised of 12 improvised (channeled) Jew's harp compositions. The first 11 tracks are solo improvisations, the 12th track is a layered composition with 4 different harps and a drum. The Jew's harp is known by many names throughout the world, in English alone it is called Jew's harp, jaw harp, juice harp, mouth harp & trump. Hundreds of cultures around the globe have independently discovered this mystical instrument... "Native Tongue" utilizes 11 different harps from 10 different regions/cultures, the personal collection of Yurt (aka Fletcher Tucker, also of Bird By Snow).

Jew's harps are exceptionally unique instruments because the mouth and throat serve as the resonance chamber for the metal or wood reed. The sound enters the body of the performer, the internal universe, before being "released" into the external world. Given this simple fact it seems unsurprising that Jew's harps (in their various forms) feature largely into much indigenous sacred music and ritual, from Mongolia to Peru. Additionally the sounds of these instruments are appropriately other worldly and magical.

"" is the Runic symbol for "harvest", these songs were harvested from a near by dimension.
