02/2009 Alejandro Miniaci/Cinnamonia collaboration

We're happy to report about some recent collaborative work of Cinnamonia with Argentinian guitar artist Alejandro Miniaci, all made possible due to the marvellous wizardry of file exchange on the weird-world-web. Alejandro submitted guitar parts for two new Cinnamonia songs, "One Thousand Autumns" and "Hunter(Towering Clouds In the Sky)", which will form part of a third Cinnamonia album currently in the process of writing, though we have no idea yet when and especially in which form this is likely to be released. However, you can download the first versions of these tracks, likely to be developed further, on Alejandro's website for free. Also don't forget to check out his solo work, of course.

In the meantime, we have begun work on another track, this time written by Alejandro but rather much altered by us. I guess this should be Alejandro Miniaci vs Cinnamonia, then... But wait and see: this will be made available as a free download soon, too.

01/2008 "Songs In The Trees" now also available as a download from Grenzwellen!

For those who prefer downloads over the physical cd: The new Cinnamonia album is now also available via Ecki Stieg's Grenzwellen shop. You can buy the whole album or individual tracks from there.

10/2007 "Songs In The Trees" - The new Cinnamonia album OUT on 19th OCTOBER!!

We are very happy to announce that the second album from Cinnamonia is finally released! Five years in the making, we hope that this long time of gestation has proved worthwhile. "Songs In The Trees" features 12 new songs from Sandra Barclay (vocals) and Thomas Köhler (instruments).

For those who know "The Scarlet Sea": the tracks on "Songs In The Trees" sound darker, more experimental and complex, but have gained in emotionality and depth while retaining their immediacy and beauty. "Songs in The Trees" also highlights Cinnamonia's ongoing interest in the mysterious, spiritual aspects of traditional English and Irish music; witness our version of "O'er the hills and far away", the archaic and disturbing "A Cold Eye", or "The Deer's Cry", which is sung in Gaelic and is based on a text allegedly written by St. Patrick of Ireland in the 5th century. On these pieces you will hear the voice of Irishman Chris Barclay, reciting the lyrics with his inimitable voice. Also guesting on "Songs in the Trees" is Italian singer and poet Sal Pichireddu, with whom we also share the Desvelos project. And like on the debut album, American guitarist Walter Parks accentuates our music with contributions on e-bow and other instruments. More information on the new album (tracklisting, full credits etc.) on the dedicated page here.

"Songs In The Trees" was produced, arranged, and recorded by Cinnamonia. Many thanks to Dimm Dölle who did the final mastering. To listen to some of the new tracks, go to our myspace site:

To celebrate the release of the new album, we have also re-designed the website. Hope you like what you see!
