Cigdem Aslan
"A thousand cranes"


From the 1920’s Smyrna and Istanbul of Çiğdem’s debut album ‘Mortissa’, ‘A Thousand Cranes’ expands to Athens, the Balkans and South East Anatolia. A band of world class musicians, led once again by the musical director Nikos Baimpas, accompanies her journey with a modern and crisp sound, embellishing the deep rooted melodies with modern jazzy influences and inspired improvisations.

Kottarashky and The Rain Dogs

"Cats, dogs and ghosts"


Kottarashky is back with album number three, this time taking us deep into a New York district called Sofia and introducing us to its street corners brimming with rock, blues, Balkan-style funk and jazz-flavoured rhythms. At first, "Cats, Dogs and Ghosts" sounds as if the band has set out on the road to rock ‘n’ roll. But then Kottarashky sets the pace with those tight groove collages and Balkan samples we’re familiar with.

Robert "Robi" Svärd
"Pa'ki pa'ka"


“If you want, I´ll sing on this track, Robi” This comment was made by Granada based flamenco singer Alfredo Tejada on a video of Sweden based guitarist Robert Svärd and led to this unique album, recorded together with Miguel “El Cheyenne” in Granada at the legendary FJR Estudios de grabación.
