Mixtape #47 by Esmerine


We love Esmerine. Their heartfelt, adventurous, and majestic compositions are filled with beauty. Their latest release, Dalmak, made it in our Album Picks 2013, so needless to say we're more than a little excited to present the mixtape they've put together for us this month. Pack your boots and get ready for a round-the-world musical trip. And for the first time on Cast the Dice, the mixtape includes special cameo appearances from a blue jay and a raven!
