This is not a CD with a booklet. This is a book with a CD. There is lots to read... The music on this record is not as flamboyant as 'typical' Balkan music records I have come across including what is broadcasted by Swedish radio stations but the qualty of the musicians and the music has totally won me over.
JORDI SAVALL is one of our age's great cultural heroes. In BALKAN SPIRIT he continues his exploration of the musical world heritage of the fringes of Europe- focusing in particular on the gypsy and Sephardic connection in music from the Balkans. Masterful performances of Wonderfully envigorating music.
