Song of the Day: Basia Bulat, “The Shore”

A perfect song for this snow filled day. Bulat’s voice is warm and bracing against this cold day. She doesn’t possess a large range, but her voice works so well with the kinds of old fashioned instruments she chooses. I love that this video is shot inside a French dulcimer shop. It’s the kind of space I’d love to have if I owned a shop, a throwback of sorts to the things that made communal music possible: dulcimers, lutes, and wooden recorders. I think HibOO d’live is another French group that does these take away videos in unusual places.
