The Four Corners Quartet – Shock and Awe (arr. for String Quartet) by GoGo Penguin

The Four Corners Quartet demonstrate an extraordinary technique in their self-titled debut EP. Originating from Jordan, USA, UK and Palestine the 4 group members exhibit an attention to Arabic improvisations, Palestinian folk, Native American Choctaw hymnals and a jazz cover arranged by our favorite GoGo Penguin.

Formed in 2014 at Berklee College of Music and gaining many Youtube views up till today, they step out across the borders with their first record. The opening cover track Shock and Awe encapsulates a beautiful string transformation! All tracks are so wonderfuly crafted, they will make you cry from the beauty, deep within their sea. A stuctural liberation and a tender diversity will lead you on the path from love, to buy this brilliant album.

You can start listening on Idagio  or get a physical copy via Bandcamp. Follow the Four Courners Quartet on Facebook and Twitter. Share the love!
