In Their Words: “The first part of this song is the result of attending a Moravian church as a child and singing Bach chorales. Just fiddle and voices is a cool concept, reminds me of the organ. I wrote the second part at a late-night party in Buenos Aires, singing as I banged on a doumbek. Turns out it is in 9/8. This song has a ton of influences: Rajasthani folk, British Isles ballad singing, bluegrass, pop. It’s the kind of mystical world music I feel directly results from a deep respect for all folk music traditions while using one as your guiding light, in our case bluegrass.” — Joe Troop, Che Apalache
