The third album from award-winning duo Whyte.
Whyte infuses Gaelic song, original and traditional, and blends with the latest techniques in electronica.
WHYTE consider this album an extension of the successful Maim show, which was a unique collaboration with Theatre Gu Leor. The theatre production directed by Muireann Kelly and featuring script contributions by fellow cast-members Elspeth Turner and Evie Waddell had completed its Glasgow tour dates when the COVID19 pandemic forced the postponement of the remaining performance dates.
Six of the album's tracks featured in 'Maim' the show and have been developed for the album.
Four original instrumental tracks composed by Ross, three featuring spoken word based on scenes from the show, and three songs.
"MAIM, meaning panic in Gàidhlig, is a call to action, giving voice to the frustrations of the next generation who care deeply about the crisis facing their land and language." Theatre Gu Leòr.
Includes a booklet with background information, lyrics, and translations.
