Trance Songs

The Trance Songs program is perfect for large concert settings where one might expect to hear world vocal music in the vein of Enya or Dead Can Dance. The program features Irina Mikhailova, a vocalist, composer, and multi instrumentalist from Kazakhstan whose musical style reflects the traditions of Russia, Balkans, Asia and Middle East. Irina has a large following in electronic trance music circles, and Ancient Future's Trance Songs program is becoming quite popular as an organic alternative to techno at outdoor festivals, concert series, raves, and dances due to the 100% loop-free organic world trance grooves played live by master musicians. The program was a crowd favorite at the Harmony Festival's Techno Tribal Dance, where new material was debuted with Irina singing in English in addition to her native Russian language.
