Christmas Calendar, day #1

Welcome to the Eclipse Music Christmas Calendar 2016!

The idea here that each day from now until Christmas Eve, the 24th, Eclipse Music will share a free piece of music from our back catalogue for you to enjoy and to download to your computer or mobile device.

The credit for this idea goes to my son. Thank you, Onni!

December 1st, track 1: “Pulkkamäessä” by Kauhukakara.

I thought it would be appropriate to begin with a track from the very first album Eclipse Music released in 2008. The band Kauhukakara is Pauli Lyytinen (sax), Anni Egecioglu (vocals) – the power duo of Elifantree – Joonas Kuusisto (bass) and Tuomas Turunen (keyboards). Their music is a quirky combination of jazz, chamber music, children’s music and avant garde, but always with an approachable, melodic surface.

The track here, called “Pulkkamäessä”, when translated from Finnish, means Sled Riding. A very appropriate beginning for the winter time. Enjoy!
