Mando Liniment CD cover

Announcing the long awaited follow-up recording to the highly acclaimed "Take Two'" ("Group of the year"...Trad Magazine, France). Recorded at Virginia Arts Recording Studio, Mando Mafia's "Mando Liniment" continues the exploration of their self-styled "Global String Band Music" using their 6 piece wall-of-mando sound filter. Winners of the Non-Traditional Band Award at West Virginia's Appalachian String Band Music Festival, the band pushes the boundaries further still with the addition of guest musicians and vocal numbers. Joining the sounds of old-time tunes of the 20s and 30s with reggae from Sweden, waltzes from Puerto Rico and England, and a march from Finland might sound like an unlikely combination, but their unique approach produces a highly cohesive album, a "safe and sure radical cure" guaranteed to "soothe raw nerves."
