about

"...this is ethnomusicology at its finest, devoid of arty, slapped-on electronica stylings to make it palatable for Western consumption." Toni Tileva , The Vinyl District

"...If Evening Dust Choir does not move you then your soul has been surgically detached from your body, or you’re a Republican...I implore all of you with open minds and open hearts to get this record and listen to it repeatedly. 10/10 " - Iann Robinson, Craveonline.com

"These reflections upon universal experiences ultimately pull the album together into a coherent whole, a sustained meditation upon the beauty and commonality of the creative spirit and its role in a world that often seems to offer little more than destruction and degradation." - Graham Scala, RVA magazine


Recorded during 2011 in the following beloved cities: Cap Haitien, Palmares CR, Montevideo UR, DC, & (412) Pittsburgh
