Polyminor

The Polyminor trio are an instrumental band from Sydney, led by Matt Luciano on the classical guitar. The violin is arranged and performed by Susannah Clark, the double-bass by Mike Rix.

Their music is a mix between upbeat folk and dark, brooding tones. Sometimes evocative Middle-eastern sounds are mixed into the bowl, bringing to the fore that 'harmonic minor' flavour.
The music has been described as atmospheric, though, all music can claim that, so just listen to the songs and enjoy.
