"Rather than simply documenting the songs and groups of the region, Mr. Feld likes to listen to the way that daily life, nature, music, ritual and technology interact (which is truly the modern holiday spirit),
selecting tracks in which the sounds of church bells, radios, conversations, street musicians and grilling foods all mingle in the aleatory composition that is life."

Neil Strauss, NY Times
