They're Calling Me Home me remitió a otra época, una época donde la música no era como ahora la conocemos, antes de la revolucionaria idea de Alba Edison en el siglo XIX, mucho antes del momento en que no sólo era un lujo recurrir a ella, sino un privilegio para las cortes burguesas; tal vez es la música del medievo europeo la que evoca en mí. Es hermoso pensar cómo es que aún hoy día después de tantos años no ... read more

Those who know the duo get what they expect.
To those who don´t this is folkmusic (including one italian opera song) performed in an austere and serious manner. Both musicians are masters of their main instruments (Banjo, Frame drum) and Rhiannon Giddens is a great (classicaly trained) singer. This recording seems to get down to the roots of folk (Songs about Death, being homeless, and faith) and some songs are almost transcendental in their spiritual quality. Yet there is sth. that I ... read more

FIRST LISTEN: If Brokeback Mountain was remade (hope not, wont ever match the original), this would be an ideal accompaniment.

Another great release from Rhiannon Giddens, this is a duo that just compliments each other so well. Turisi's playing is raw, intimate folk and there's so much soul from both poured in, it is goosebumps inducing at times from Giddens' vocal power. I'll have more to say after more listens. The only one that felt out of place and unwanted was 'Nenna Nenna'.

American folk singer and songwriter Rhiannon Giddens brings out a lot of heart and meaning through her words and the way she delivers them with her striking voice and on her newest venture They’re Calling Me Home, she once again collaborates with multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi to bring us their take on traditional folk and gospel. There are moments here that are mostly instrumental (like a hummed take on the classic “Amazing Grace”), but elsewhere the true power of ... read more

High quality soulful serious bluesy folk that creates a beautiful atmosphere. True NPR core. I have been impressed with everything Rhiannon Giddens has done, and this is no exception. Everything on here is pretty amazing. Especially the singing and overall musicianship. Unfortunately, it does have a few weak tracks, and as a whole it does feel a little odd, but that might just be hearing her sing in Italian on some of the tracks. I will be coming back to this a lot.

Rhiannon Giddens With Francesco Turrisi - They're Calling Me Home
Italian Folk
April 9, 2021

The great singer, song writer and producer Rihannon Giddens in her second collaboration With Francesco Turrisi, who subdue the Italian music and culture to the simplest form together, even this project is made with more basic instrumentals than the first project of them. And the result of this collaboration is a sophisticated piece of instrumentation as expected to come from such masters, but I feel ... read more

These guys go great together, but I don't really sit around just listening to their albums on repeat. I mean I enjoyed it, but I don't really need to listen to it much more than I have...

It took 5 listens for me to properly absorb and rate this style change. After all is said and done, my first rating was too low. Now I have to admit that I embrace this album.
