“Born Free” is the latest single to be released by the eccentrically experimental up and coming World music artist Castlemill.
You’ll find the usual organically textured woody percussion in Born Free, but within the arrangement, there are also inventively placed orchestral layers which you wouldn’t usually find in World Music. Yet, Castlemill has found a way to weave in a nuanced cinematic flair which makes the soundscape all too easy to sink into.
It’s uplifting, it’s innovative, and it’s given us more reason to get excited by the artist’s ability to orchestrate music which feels like an epic adventure whilst simultaneously feeding you catharsis.
