Bullard St. Beneath these unlikely mu- sical marriages, a certain wu'mth remains to unify Round Mountain's sound and message. In a time when most music has become so brightly polished that can see inside. Round Mountain presents a rare rough gem of humanity that glows from within. 'Sometimes raucous, some- /imes subtle, touched with emo- tiiSnal honesty, brothers Char and Robby Rothschild, who make up the Round Mountain duo, have a quirky eccentricity and immedi- ate rapport with their audience. In a world in which physical and cultural distance means less and less, they are asking questions that need to be asked like: "How do we as Americans fit into the melting pot of the world? How can we connect to our roots while rema!ning ourselves?" Based m Santa Fe, their background ranges from Balkan and West Af- rican styles to traditional Appa- lachian music, from classical to funk. Listeners should expect to hear many extremes -- beautiful acoustic numbers, wild bagpipes. trumpet and accordion, Bulgar- ian zydeco, klezmer and Malian YOU HAV CHANGE.
