CyberTrad is an experimental music project that combines traditional & original Irish wooden flute with vocals, bass & Human Beatbox.
This album comes out of Louisiana. It's a tour-de-force of breath and voice. Beatboxing mixes seamlessly with the Irish wooden flute. The album also features lovely ballads like "Pretty Saro" and "The Bonny Irish Boy". Flutist Matthew Olwell conceived of this innovative fusion of voice and wind, drawing from his love of traditional Irish and Breton music. The album also features bassist Simon Lepage of the Québécois band Matapat.
