This trio includes keyboardist Pol Brennan (co-founder of Clannad, Guo Yue, flutist of The Guo Brothers) and Hirota, a Japanese percussionist who has played with Stomu Yamash'ta. They cover a broad terrain, from haunting, ethereal Deuter-like flute passages to rhythmic worldbeat numbers, plus vocals reminiscent of Clannad. It all holds together well on this excellent release that brings diverse lands and musical worlds into a topical whole. Trísan exemplifies the hybrid creations emerging out of today's cross-cultural world music.
