Esta's latest album, Home Made World
, covers expansive musical territory, and the number and range of instruments used by the five band members would almost fill a music store.
The title of the new album is an apt choice, alluding to both the way the band members view their lives and the odyssey they undertook to get the CD made.
"We do practically everything ourselves," Deshet says. "That gives us complete control over the content and how it is presented."
Part of that presentation is the cover design, which was put together by band member Ori Beenstock, who also plays around a dozen stringed instruments on the album, including guitars, mandola, bouzouki and jumbush.
