Two creative flautists come together when Michel Edilin joins Nicole Mitchell's Indigo Trio with Harrison Bankhead and Hamid Drake for an album of excellent and tantric improvisation.

Indigo Trio + Michel Edelin
The Ethiopian Princess Meets The Tantric Priest

Indigo Trio + Michel Edelin: The Ethiopian Princess Meets The Tantric Priest (RogueArt)
Label: RogueArt    
Released in: France    

"Nicole Mitchell and Michel Edelin are two of the most creative flutists in music of any sort today, brilliant improvisers with highly developed sensitivities to sound. Yet their personal approaches to playing one of the oldest instruments in the world represent two far ends of an esthetic spectrum...

... So The Ethiopian Princess Meets the Tantric Priest demonstrates what happens when opposite poles touch. Like a marvel of physics, the reverberations generate something new: in this case, previously unimagined dimensions of pure song. The sonic spheres the Princess and the Priest conjure - with wonderful support from bassist/pianist Harrison Bankhead and drummer Hamid Drake - are akin to what's born by a spirit of the air in congress with a guardian of the earth..."-Howard Mandel, from the liner notes
