Like no other music you ever heard; a guaranteed mind blower
TUCO H. | Los Angeles, CA | 08/16/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This must be the most virtuosic clarinet record ever. In addition this kind of music is never heard of in America; it's real exotic stuff. These Bulgarian/Turkish tunes, though apparently wedding music (!), are played at extremely fast tempos; two are in 7/8, one is in 11/16 (!). They're all vehicles for non stop wailing by Papasov who is probably the greatest clarinet player on the planet."
With all the trouble in the balkans,this cd is the good side

"this absolutely fantastic cd covers music not only from bulgaria but turkey, romanian (rom/gypsy), macedonian, serbian and greek. its a wonderfully arranged compilation of the best rythmic, jazz and soul music to ever come out of the balkans, ivo papasov is up there with the kings of balkan music such as Tode Ognenovski, Ferus Mustafov, and Dragan Alifermovic...absolutley sensational for all jazz and soul lovers."
What a clarinet maniac!!!

"This a great CD. Especially if you have ever played the clarinet. Its amazing what he can do on the clarinet! Wow. I'd had never listened to Bulgarian wedding music really before this CD, and bought it based on one song on a sampler CD and was very pleased."
