Helen Chaya, The Sea & the Mother, St. Even 

When: Fri., May 24, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: free
Tonight's dual CD release ushers new records from Helen Chaya and Dao Strom into the world. Chaya's new one, I Am Not Thinking of War Today, is a sparse, folk-inflected singer/songwriter effort with straightforward songs that sound like simple, melancholy raindrops. Strom's new one, released under the name the Sea and the Mother, is a conceptual piece titled We Were Meant to Be a Gentle People (East EP). It comes with an accompanying book, and it sees the author/songwriter exploring her Vietnamese heritage both conceptually and musically—Strom's songs make use of both typical American singer/songwriter folk traditions and the Vietnamese ca dao technique of sung poetry.
