Junko Yanagida - Flowers

A beautiful mixture of sort of a poem (word spoken by Junko Yanagida, with a very soft voice), accompanied by a flute and rhythmic drums. The first part of the text is spoken in Japanese (I don't understand a word, but luckily there's an English translation in the comments section). The second part is spoken in English and even gets a little symphonic touch (more instruments and a choir in the background), very nice...

Gerry Dempsey - Mordechai

A great composition by Gerry Dempsey, who plays on the guitar and is accompanied by Ian Jacks on the violin. They dedicated the piece to Israeli anti-nuclear whistleblower Mordechai Vanunu.

If you like the tune, make sure to also checkout this other version, which puts more emphasis on the violins, IMHO.

Minstrel Spirit - The Lonely Minstrel Parts 1 And 2

Here comes another tune from Minstrel Spirit's album "Enter The Woods". Again, a slow and melodic medieval song. This one's for godo, because he was the first to comment on my podcast ;-)
