    Ancient tunes are performing here on duduk (traditional wind instrument), kemancha (4-string violin), percussion, also you can find two vocal pieces. The elements of classical and folk traditions of playing presented by well-known musicians, representatives of different schools of performing.
    Apricot Tree is also the modernistic project, existing in our reality. Electronic sounds are taking here the same part as singing of birds, wind-blowing and other nature sounds, which could surround musicians of the past, for example in highlands.
    The music of Apricot Tree is like a memory of a lost beauty, an attempt to catch the half-forgotten  sounds  through the screen of daily occurance and interference.
