Hirundo Maris is singer/harpist Arianna Savall’s debut as a band leader for ECM New Series. The title, the Latin term for “sea swallow” finds the quintet connecting sounds of the Mediterranean with the North Sea. Part early music ensemble, part folk group, the band creates rich instrumental textures colored by Arianna’s sparkling harps and Johansen’s Hardanger fiddle. This recording is a listening experience like none other.
