Wounded Tropic is a series of three albums that narrate the story of a small island, and it's devastation at the hands of a massive tropical storm. Four voices, both elemental and human, mark the disaster and it's bleak myriad of effects. Present in all volumes are the natives, the island, the ocean, and the storm itself.
Vol. 1 takes place as the tempest begins to form.
This is an album about the natural world, our ghosts, our children, the fears we hold, and the future we hope to create.
