4.0 out of 5 stars Moldovan music as brought to you by...., 24 April 2007
This review is from: The Way The Wind Blows (Audio CD)
Anyone who has done the right thing and bought the Beirut album, Gulag Orkestar, should really make the effort and purchase this work as well. Whilst it is not nearly as poppy as the former, it is a really listenable piece of work encapsulating an area of the world that few of us have entered....Moldovan folk.

It does not have the immediacy of Beirut, but equally over time the listener is rewardede by a very original, wonderful piece of work that will transport you from your chair/train/car into the hills and traditional landscape of Moldova, with it's traditional people, living simple lives, gaining pleasure through the story telling abilities of their music, that probably has evolved far too slowly to require X factor to tell you who has the best voice, or silliest haircuts.

No, A Hawk and a Hacksaw have hatched a piece of work that will last aeons longer than anything from this current generation of pretenders....take the voyage and enjoy every note.
