Music doesnâ€™t understand national borders. It canâ€™t be so easily constrained. Music grows, it travels, and it resonates. Traditions, sounds, styles all interconnect. The modal music that Ross Daly explores seems to exist outside time, weaving strands from so many parts of the world and combining past, present, and future together in gliding, mesmerizing melodies. Modal music is based around tones or modes rather than Western scales, and covers a region that stretches from the north west of Africa to west China.
Daly is a master of the Mediterranean lyra, a bowed fiddle that has more than a dozen sympathetic strings.
