Soundwalk Collective
"Sons Of The Wind"


Recordings from Gypsy villages in Ukraine, Moldavia, Romania, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Serbia, Hungary, Slovakia, Austria.
The Soundwalk Collective followed the course of the Danube and of the music of the Roma. From ghettos to mahale, recording heart- rending songs, mournful violins, tinkling cimbaloms, the gutsy tones of brass bands. Sounds accompanied by the words of the Elders, the rustling of long skirts, the wind in the delta plain, and, always in the background, the rumbling of the river. This is the origin of the sound poem Sons of the Wind.

"Kumushki Pjut"


Volga is an unparalleled project rooted in the Moscow music scene. It successfully combines experimental electronics, contemporary dance rhythms and Russian folklore. Pagan psychedelia, shamanism, melodies and lyrics from ancient times mixed with urban aesthetics are the essential components of Kumushki Pjut. Some might say Volga is the sound of the Middle Ages erupting in our times. Others might object by saying that this is the third millennium speaking to us in the language of the Russian Middle Ages.

"Cigarros Explosivos!"


Jaro Milko & The Cubalkanics

If music is a drug, Jaro Milko & The Cubalkanics are loaded. Inebriated Balkan rave-ups share the stage with psychedelic Peruvian chichas. Milko's fuzzed-out surf guitar shimmers and slices as sharp and cool as a Cuban machete blade - the 13 tracks of "Cigarros Explosivos!" are like a trip through the Balkans and the South America, you will want to relive.

"Devil's Tale"


Adrian Raso and Fanfare Ciocărlia

Romania's Fanfare Ciocarlia join up with Canadian guitarist Adrian Raso. Could the legends of brass music adapt their horns to the fluid eloquence of a jazz guitarist? The answer, as heard on this album, is one of brilliant defiance.
