Flook
Rubai
World Village

By MARTY LIPP

Published May 30, 2006

It’s been said the musical story of the 20th Century was the rise to preeminence of rhythm. In Irish music, groups such as Solas added a strong rhythm guitar, while Lunasa made an electric bass a prominent part of its sound. One of the newest additions to this coterie is Flook, which boasts the unlikely teaming of two wind players, a percussionist and a rhythm guitarist. Though the members have been playing together since 1995, Rubai is their first U.S. release. The group delivers some gorgeous, spirited music from Ireland and Scotland as well as Greece, Sweden and America. Generally, the album zips along swiftly, but without the fury of a rock band.
