Mandolinist David Pelta-Tiller and violinist Enion Pelta-Tiller enlist a colorful cast of characters for Taarka's fifth CD, featuring 15 tracks that delve into their deep musical roots-Gypsy jazz, Celtic folk, bluegrass, chamber music, jazz, rock-to create a brave new sonic world. The high-energy group's artistic soul floats above geographic boundaries-part of the great collective of musicians who criss-cross the country, constantly revitalizing and reframing the sounds of Americana. It is this world (as well as an 1894 collection of poems by Bliss Carman and Richard Hovey titled Songs from Vagabondia) that inspired the title and eclectic mix of tunes that ensues. With its sparkling fiddle arpeggios and smoky vocals, the opening song, "Wandering," sweeps listeners into Adventures in Vagabondia.
