"I was looking for several years to get in touch with Resian music. It was almost impossible the last know LP record was published in 1973. Resia is a small walley in Italy. It has only few residents - less than 100 who are speaking an old version of slavic language. They have also their own culture and music cult. They play strings - violinas on a different way. They suport violinas with their bellies and not with neck. When they are playing violinas, they are using a foot to produce rythem. The sound of their music is powerful and optimistic. Their string music is similar to music from Bretagne or Ireland.This CD represent a complet overview of Resian musical heretagie. The opening songs brings in a close touch with virgin Resian country side. Through the CD you are going to explore the beauty of nature and people habbits. Song Bant's music represents the highest peak of CD. You are going to see how isolation in narrow alpine walley makes poeple to choose a different way of development of language and culture.If you are looking for authentic folks music, this is a right decision for you."
