Read "The Ethiopian Princess Meets The Tantric Priest" reviewed by John Sharpe

Given the paucity of flute trios in the normal course of events, and the appearance of two almost simultaneously on the same label, it was only a matter of time before the Paris-based Rogue Art imprint brought the two main protagonists together. The Ethiopian Princess Meets The Tantric Priest represents the fruits of the union of ...

Michel Edelin Trio: Kuntu

Read "Kuntu" reviewed by John Sharpe

Perennially unfashionable and plagued by perceptions of insufficient heft and timbral variation, it's not surprising that flute-based trios are rarer than an apologetic banker. Not that this troubles the Paris-based RogueArt label, as straight after the Indigo Trio's Anaya (2009) comes another, this time under the direction of flautist Michel Edelin.
