ETHEL + Robert Mirabal: Tuvan Ride

Genre-crossing string quartet ETHEL’s latest endeavor is a new studio album with their regular collaborator, native American musician Robert Mirabal. Merging classical with the sacred and spiritual, The River releases 24 June via Innova Recordings—get a sampling with this recording session of “Tuvan Ride” at Mirabal’s home on the Taos Pueblo, in New Mexico. Strings bounce along with Mirabal’s piercing, birdlike flute as well as his gigantic didjeridoo—rekindling a connection to the earth.
