From the album The Fluid Score
Anatolian Giraffe - Tev Stevig
This tune first appeared on the Klezwoods album, Toy Monkey (2018), but it takes on a very different character here. Gone are the horns and electric guitar of the aforementioned 10-piece klezmer and balkan group, replaced here by plucked and bowed strings with gentle percussion. The title refers to the long-necked saz or bağlama, an ever present instrument in Anatolian folk music, as well as the gentle loping nature of the tune’s rhythm.
