    Very haunting.

    It sounds very Middle Eastern.  Similar to some of the Greek music I grew up with (much of which, itself, sounds like a lot of Arabic and Turkish music- not surprising, really).

    since I discovered her album “The Visit” in the 90’s.

    At Christmas I put together some music for the family, getting requests from family members using a theme of some sort. One of this year’s themes is “female vocalist”. I have already chosen her song “The Highwayman” in honor of the brother that I lost. He’s the one who made me sit down and listen to it, although I already had the album.
