The music of the ceilidh meets the 21st century!
Serundal’s music strives to respect and preserve the traditional values of the Celtic peoples. As in the olden days when both young and old sat around the fire reciting old poems and legends, Serundal’s songs fuse timeless universal themes of birth, death, love and spirituality with 21st century concerns such as environmental issues and global warming. Musically too, traditional music sounds of pipes, fiddles and string instruments work hand in hand with contemporary instruments such as lead and bass electric guitars.
The vocals in Serundal’s music are also mixed with more emphasis on retaining the natural sound of the voice rejecting over-production or synthesis. Close harmonies are also an essential part of the music, once again drawing on the strengths and richness of traditional Celtic music.
‘Crossing Over’ is an album about loss in all its many forms. When we experience loss, we can either let it change our lives negatively forever or use the experience to make us stronger, happier and more appreciative of the wonderful planet we inhabit. The dolphin pleads with us all to show respect for all life on the planet, songs of the remote Scottish highlands reveal the human being’s resilience in coming to terms with death, rejection and loss of a way of life. In ‘The Fine Line’ an artist tries to come to terms with the loss of his mind and his ability to create.
Are you ready to cross over? It’s time to let go. Enjoy.
