This CD was originally released in 1996 and is a mix of Traditional Celtic, Gaelic and Slavic music with pop rhythms and jazzy backgrounds.

Originally from multicultural New York, Talitha has been living in Edinburgh since 1987.

She initially became known in Scotland for her work with Martin Swan, under the name Mouth Music, who became much acclaimed for their innovative world-folk fusion.
After the split with Mouth Music in 1991, Talitha continued to explore world music in parallel with Scottish music, forming a women's cappella group Sedenka.

Spiorad (Spirit) is a captivating, upbeat album, combining great singing, backed by a wide range of instruments.

The enclosed booklet contains full texts, translations and personnel credits.
