These Villages, the third album from Hala Strana, is a further culmination of Steven R. Smith's interest in Eastern European folk music. Smith's original, instrumental compositions are peppered with interpretations of traditional songs. Built upon layers of sustained drone & delicately plucked and bowed strings, These Villages creates a bewitching listening experience, a highlight in Smith's vast discography.
