WILLOW - album of the Russian ethno-musician Xibil.


Handpans flying sounds draw their main line of album. They are woven into the threads of other ethnic instruments: hook, jew's harp, Tibetan bowls, xiao flute and clarinet, African kalimba.

The depth and diversity of the space creates electronic sounds.


Xibil -music of the ancient Ural mountains, beautifully hills, the endless plains.

She blows freely flying nearby and fills the soul of the listener.

Symbol of the album - the internal image of understanding the world.

Shadow warm wind swirls around Willow, it carries a wonderful melody instruments.

Magic, the secret world hidden in the compositions of the wind and the strength of the tree.
