Info for Hamadryade
This somewhat unusual trio has broken away from the traditional guitar/base/drum formation. Gravitating around Marc Vallée's acoustic guitar, it has assembled a repertoire of original compositions only colored by its various experiences. Folk, jazz, improvisations, etc. Each musician of this trio cumulate at least 20 years experience in various musical context.
In the Greek mythology, Hamadryade relates to the deity of woods who is born in and lives in a tree. This was greatly the source of inspiration for this album. It's a journey in a mysterious and welcoming forest. The rich mixture of sounds of the acoustic guitar, the didgeridoo, the tablas and the udu conveys all the warmth of this noble substance.
Hamadryade slakes a thirst I wasn’t even aware I had. I’ve never been a big fan of much that passes for world music, but this album transcends that term and passes straight into the realm of good music, period. It isn’t just a collection of type as much as a melding of style. Once again Rene LaFlamme mixes a heady brew of talent and sound into a disc that should satisfy the taste buds of audiophiles and music lovers. Its musical mixture combined with its great sonics make Hamadryade the proper sampler for anyone not yet familiar with Fidelio Audio. (John Crossett, Soundstage)
