Listening to the CD…one is struck by the unfamiliar sounds emerging from a string quartet, as it submerges itself into the idiom of the uhadi. Especially in track 4, Robert Fokkens exploits the strings’ ability to produce haunting dissonances and static movement interspersed with rapid rhythmical passages to create a masterful soundscape reminiscent of rural landscapes in South Africa.
