Laurel MacDonald - Luscinia's LullabyMacDonald is one of Canadian music’s little-known treasures, a gifted singer whose songs straddle traditional Cape Breton tunes and modern electronic sounds. It’s an engaging, hypnotic fusion that has lent itself to choreography by Les Grandes Ballets Canadiens and remixing by Transglobal Underground. Her latest CD is another strikingly original work, featuring the chanting “Murmur of Pearl,” the jazzy title track and the dreamy “Song for this Child,” with its pulsing rhythms and rich, cascading vocals.
