The Little Swallow (Carol of the Bells)/ Al Vuelo - Sultans of String

"This song ‘Shchedryk,' known in English as ‘The Little Swallow,' is a Ukrainian New Year's carol. Many people know it by its later adaption to another song, ‘Carol of the Bells.' Here we created a mashup with our original song ‘Al Vuelo,' arranged in a Spanish bulerias style. We took this song full-circle, back to Europe, to record with the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. The most exciting part of the process was travelling to Prague. I knew that the musicians there would do an incredible job with this song, which we got to record in a Soviet-era studio. And I was praying for snow, so we could create a Christmas feel in the middle of their iconic square in the old town. Finally the snow came and we rushed down to the square to capture the moment!"
