Stellar Rembetica Artists All on One CD
Erika Borsos | Gulf Coast of FL, USA | 04/07/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If I had to own one and only one CD of Rembetica music: this one is it!!! Usually there is only one or two instruments accompanying a song/instrumental: either bouzouki alone or with either a kanun, cimbalom, violin, or clarinet, or lyra alone ... then the voice of a famed Rembetica singer starts to sing: to the beat of a "Cafe Aman" melody. The stark contrast of voice and basic instruments creates a very earthy and natural sound.

The liner notes are helpful in listing origin of the song or instrumental, a little history of where it was first played or recorded and something about the life of the artist. Overall, this is the *best* combination of Rembetica music I have yet heard! Erika Borsos (erikab93)"
Listening through a window back in time
George | Australia | 07/24/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"this fabulous CD is a marvel of the human spirit caught in time and place .A world we can never go to , but we can visit through this window.There is a eerie nostalgic quality to the music which is palpable and strange given that in their time and place these recordings were contemporary ."
