In the last week, most of the songs on the music blog have been Electronic, so here is a simple song of the day from a different genre. Arborea is an Indie Folk duo from Maine consisting of multi-instrumental husband and wife, Buck and Shanti Curran. Their music can also be classified as Psychedelic Folk, a mainly acoustic genre, which originated in the 1960s. It is a combination of folk and psychedelic rock that is meant to bring about a spiritual experience or altered state of awareness.

The instrument that Shanti plays in this song is a banjo dulcimer called a ban-jammer. It’s a commonly found in the in the Appalachian region of the U.S. For more details, you’ll have to look it up online. :)
