====

A stunning sonic portrait of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, never before chronicled in a commercial release. This compilation features music, poetry recitations, ambient and natural sound from the main island of the Socotra archipelago in the Gulf of Aden. Recorded over a ten-day period in March 2013, SOCOTRA SOUNDSCAPES is an audio document as rare and unique as the place it chronicles.
