This album is all about the sound of the harp: on the one hand that of Welsh harpist Catrin Finch, who made a name for herself in the folk scene, and, on the other, the African harp or kora of Senegalese kora player Seckou Keita. The result is an encounter of cultures in which both instruments blend effortlessly and a Celtic folk song can suddenly turn into a traditional West African kora-composition. Terms like "ethereal" and "cinematic" certainly apply, but 'Clychau Dibon' is above all else an incredibly soothing listening experience. For those wondering what the title of the album refers to, we can add "clychau" is Welsh for "bells" and refers to the clattering harp arrangements on the album. The "dibon" is a member of the hornbill family producing a sound so distinctive that the term is also used to indicate a particular Malinke music rhythm and also has become the name for one of the kora's bass strings.
