Vashon Island duo Jessika Kenney and Eyvind Kang will be playing selections from their new album, The Face of the Earth (on Sunn O))) member Stephen O’Malley’s Ideologic Organ label), Saturday night at Chapel Performance Space, in addition to classical Persian compositions.

The Face of the Earth is an exceptionally beautiful collection of spare, delicate, and intricately constructed pieces featuring Kenney’s plaintive and remarkably pliant vocals and Kang’s sinuous, gently wailing viola and spidery setar (a three-stringed Persian lute) figures. The songs feel sacred, but not oppressively so, and very worthy of worship.
