Me and Merry are back with another collaboration as Forest Elves. I thought I'd upload it here a day before we upload it on YouTube, so you guys get the first listen! This is the first song in ages where I've actually recorded the bawu (Chinese flute) live in the song, so that's something. Merry really worked her magic on this track!

Och uti gröne Lunden, där dansar ett par
Och uti gröne Lunden, där dansar ett par
Den ena var vännen, den andra var Jag
Den ena var vännen, den andra var Jag

And out in the green grove, there danced a couple
And out in the green grove, there danced a couple
One was the friend, the other was I
One was the friend, the other was I


At first I thought, "Hey, this sounds like ethrealwinds". And then I actually thought about it and checked the author. I'm such a derp. Great job.

the 10 seconds of silence at the beginning are not good.

etherealwinds responds:

It's funny you should say that - that's actually my favourite part hehe ;)

I love the celtic theme. It evokes a medieval taste of sorts. The intro may have been a little long (as I see it, it lasts almost the first full minute), but at the same time it lets you establish the gentle pace of the piece quite well. May I ask what language the vocals are sung in? At times, the harp gets a bit buried in the mix, but otherwise I'm loving how spacious and full the texture is. Your style fits your username perfectly, Jordi - it's tranquil yet supple. Keep up the good work! ^^

etherealwinds responds:

The lyrics are sang in Swedish! :) Thank you thank you!

This is so beautiful!!! <3 I looove the Chinese flute! And your voices, as well. And, everything, in fact. This was magnificent! And this language is beautiful, too! :D thank you for this!! <3

etherealwinds responds:

Thank *you* ;D

As soon as I hit the play button, I knew I was gonna be sitting in a deep forest next to a river with peaceful creatures lurking on the meadow. Seriously, what can I say? It's just great. It's right there with Celtic Woman, good old Simon and Garfunkel, and all of that folk-laced beauty. That's why I love folk music from all the corners of the world. It's inspiring and full of spirituality - all these stories that still walk the centuries.
Let's keep them alive. Great job, the both of you.

etherealwinds responds:

That's a huge compliment - waaah thank you :)
