Family Elan

The Stare of Dawn CD

"The Family Elan is the intuitive, devotional project of Glasgow's free wheeling folk dervish Chris Hladowski (Nalle, The One Ensemble, Scatter) built around Chris's gently lilting vocal offerings & the absorbing droning modal sounds of his long-necked lute. Stare of Dawn is one of those special little records -- searchingly beautiful, seemingly effortless, deeply enchanting & completely hypnotic. Elan draws on a vast array of folk musical traditions the Greek Rebetes of the 1920s, the tanbur playing of the Kurdish Sufi mystic Ostad Elahi and shyq songs of the Azerbaijani sz master Edalat Nasibov to revivalists offerings from Anne Briggs's bouzouki inventions, early Incredible String Band & Hungarian revivalists Muzsiks to name just a few points of reference."
