Synopsis

Amazon.com
There are some people who can take their instruments to another dimension: Bill Monroe with the mandolin, for example, or Jimi Hendrix with the electric guitar. Hege Rimestad does that with the fiddle. Whether working on traditional material, investigating the music of Iraq, or adding a sampler to the arsenal, White Arrow has a sense of breaking boundaries, of real creation. A Norwegian who plays with Mari Boine (a Sami joiker--that is, a type of singer among the Lapp people), Rimestad offers a unique approach to the fiddle. As agile as Paganini in parts, but with as much space as Brian Eno, she is a woman with a very, very strong vision. Taking off from prog rock, folk, and even neo-new-age, this is one of 1998's most inspired albums. Listen and be dazzled. --Chris Nickson
