Gord Grdina’s Haram - “En shakwat al Hawa” (Track of the Day)

Eclipse Concerts in Switzerland posted a video two years ago of Gord Grdina’s Haram saying, “The morning after their Basel show, we took Vancouver ensemble Haram for a ferry ride across the Rhein, followed by a visit to Basel’s glorious Bäckerei KULT (the city’s oldest bakery dating back to 1726). Croissants aux amandes, quiche and coffee flowed ... as did the music.”
