Over the weekend I had the immense pleasure of seeing A Hawk and a Hacksaw play at Elsewhere in Bushwick. They are the virtuoso duo of Heather Trost and Jeremy Barnes that scored our TV show, Skanderbeg. You can hear the Skanderbeg theme song on their latest album here.
I have been a fan of their interpretations on Balkan rhythms since long before I could point to the Balkans on a map. Their sound continues to refine over the years into something more awe inspiring each time.
Listening to their music inspires me with stories and images and and I hope they compose for us again soon. If you have a chance to see them in your town, I highly recommend it. There is nothing else like it.
