The high land in this case is the Southern slopes of the Pyrénées, the south of Gascony and what we have here is the duo of Roman Colautti and Tomàs Baudoin singing in the Gascon language and accompanying themselves on boha bagpipes, three-holed flûte, double bass and a wide range of percussion instruments.
Well, that's a bare bones of description; now we have to find an explanation of how such a simple format can generate such excitement. Starting with the amazing percussion, you would have to imagine the sort of kitchen implement percussion that you get in some Rory McLeod or Ben Ivitsky productions and imagine it carried to its logical cross-rhythmic conclusion. Where the bass is present it makes itself known in a thundering manner and the boha follows musical rules that are all of its own. The singing is excellent on songs that seem to have a narrow musical compass. When the two of them sing in harmony, they sometimes stray into some unusual but compelling intervals.
Wyrd Folk is a genre that lacks an agreed definition and seems to mean different things according to who is using it. If it means traditional song that has been treated in a thoughtful, experimental, innovative yet weird manner that produces a gripping yet disorienting reaction from the listener, then this is it.
