Music from Talislanta II

Stephan Michael Sechi's second ensemble of Talislanta music, the Music from Talislanta II CD is just the thing for getting a taste of the various cultures of Talislanta (musically, or course). It takes after the first Music from Talislanta CD, in the sense that it offers a much more eclectic arrangement of music than the theme oriented Wizard Hunter soundtrack. From the lulling tunes of the Sawila to the festive notes of the Zandir, this album gives the listener a wonderful foray into the magic of Talislantans' musical accomplishments.
