The Nordanians featuring Fraser Fifield play the song Daraa by Mark Tuinstra. The Nordanians are: Oene van Geel – viola, Mark Tuinstra – guitar, Niti Ranjan Biswas – tabla. The Scottish Fraser Fiffield plays whislte on this tune, filmed in the Noorderparkkamer by Evelyne Draaijer and recorded by Marc Broer

The Nordanians and Fraser Fifield: An interesting blend of culture and musical instruments.

What happens when you mix Jazz, Celtic and Nordic tunes in a blender, add a little sugar and cream ? You get a blend of nutritious goodness that is music made for the gods. Fraser Fifield is a big name in Scotland in the world of Jazz and Celtic music. He plays the bagpipes like a jazz musician and the saxophone like a traditional Scottish player. He can play instruments  interchangeably with the grace of a swan and still get home and be a good dad to his daughter.

The Nordanians are a trio of great musicians from Holland. You can tell the kind of  concentration they put inn their performance not just on that video but in any live shows. They reflect the carefree spirit of Amsterdam where they are from. Holland has been known as a place of Jazz expats from any part of the world. I can see more tickets being sold in my mind’s eye. These guys are really doing something beautiful musically. I shall keep my radar on for them! According to Fraser Fifield: “Looking forward to meeting up with these good people in Amsterdam again soon for more music adventure.” So this means  more videos like that one above soon. And a possible CD.

  • I like the whistle. I thought it was a recorder or flute. The four sound really nice together. Thanks for sharing this.

  • Thanks for your feedback! It is nice to listen to relaxing tunes after a hard day’s work :)They are popularly known in Scotland and Ireland as the D low whistle.They are commonly made of aluminum.It is the Riverdance tour of the 1990s that is credited with giving the low whistle commercial exposure and recognition outside traditional music circles.
