The music on the album takes inspiration from the beautiful places visited and wonderful people met whilst on tour over the last few years. Working with producer Greg Lawson they have taken melodic, rhythmic and harmonic ideas from five different cultures and merged them with their own sound. Some of this is woven into the arrangement, some of this is achieved through self-penned works.Featuring some special guests on the recording including Yidaki player Mark Atkins (AUS), extraordinary Aboriginal artist Yirrmal Marika of The Black Arm Band (AUS), Maori tradition bearer Scott Morrison (NZ), Quebecois violinist Olivier Demers and the members of Le Vent Du Nord (Quebec) and Hardanger virtuoso Olav Luksengård Mjelva of Nordic Fiddlers Bloc & Sver (NO).
