    Shiran breathes familiar but new life into Yemeni traditional songs in a stripped back and acoustic set with a backdrop of string, wind and percussion instruments like the oud, kawala and kanun. Where , previously, her music used various western pop tropes, her latest tows a much more modest line in respect of the original songs and compositions some of which date back hundreds of years.
