about

3 Years in the making, Orphaned Anthems is well worth the wait. Rich with lush orchestration and tastefully complex compositions, the album is a masterpiece of modern chamber music. The 11 instrumental songs are each epic journeys through cinematic, worldly and otherworldly landscapes. Influenced by music of the Balkans, Western Classical music, urban Roma rhythms, film soundtracks, Balinese Gamelon, and early Jazz, Emmy winning composer Dan Cantrell offers an astonishing array of auditory wonders. You will find what you never knew you were looking for, and when you dust it off and hold it close, it will sing to your heart.
