A trove of traditional & ancient music alongside self-composed explorations.

Espvall & Batoh have come prepared for anything, armed with acoustic & electric guitars, cello, renaissance harp, organ, sho, banjo, electronics, recorders, piano, hurdy gurdy, frame drums & several more obscure instruments such as auschpfeife, crumhorn, cornamuse, darbuka & rig. There are vocals as well, sung mostly by Helena but also with Batoh's empathetic support. They are backed by two of Batoh's Ghost-mates, Kazuo Ogino & Junzo Tateiwa, and joined by ancient music specialist Haruo Kondo N.
