"Sanomi" is described as a "danceable folk pearl" on one of its sites.  I
have a husband who knows quite a bit about music, and even he has never
heard of this term.  For those in the know, what is a "pearl," much less a
"folk pearl," much less a "danceable one"?  Not much on the Internet.


Hmmm, to me it sounds like a metaphor all mangled.
