The ensemble writes about their work:
"The voice of the grain is the voice of all the spirits and the forces that once populated nature. The popular culture knew how to distinguish the good spirits from the bad ones, knew how to recognize and to deal nature like as one vital individual. Subsequently man, educated with reason and science, has separated the nature of the anima, throwing to the wind the fairies, the spirits, folletti and gnomi that the once populated their dreams. In the end the "voice of the grain" is a metaphor that it tells the irrenounceable need of man for poetry and fantasy, evoking images and myth, a new sense of natural things..."

Please note!
Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
