2) Cynthia’s Tears 4:16

Keyif, a Turkish concept that translates roughly as enchantment, delight, and conviviality, traces Atlas Maior’s approach to music and life.  Keyif demonstrates the group’s maturing sonic identity by featuring original material, while also exploring their multidimensional musical influences.

World Beat Canada – Atlas Maior discusses EP Keyif (30 min mark)

Cal Koat of World Beat Canada on Atlas Maior’s Keyif EP :
Hauntingly stark & beautiful: recorded at Austin’s Bell Tree Studios, Keyif represents 3 years of Atlas Maior’s compositional ideas and travels from members Charlie Lockwood (oud), Joshua Thomson (alto saxophone, flutes), Ted Camat (percussion) and contributing bass player Gary James. Brazil, Turkey and Spain and the Canary Islands provide sonic touchstones for the Keyif EP. Altas Maior was the first world atlas made in 17th century Amsterdam.” — Comments via Pinterest.
