‘Daffodil Reverie’ – single out now!

Introducing Ensemble Diaspora’s second single, Daffodil Reverie!

Composed by Ensemble Diaspora member Martin Reese, Daffodil Reverie was inspired by the way that English dance tunes speed up and slow down, returning constantly to a steady beat. In this composition, the emphasis is less on the steady and more on the different rhythms that the music conveys.

Coupled with passionate singing by Grammy-nominated vocalist Tenzin Choegyal, an inventive arrangement by Arash Zanganeh, with striking performances from Ensemble Diaspora and special guests, there you have it: daffodils move in the wind and we are entranced.

Daffodil Reverie is available now on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, Tidal, Amazon Music, Deezer, Napster, Google Music, and Shazam.
