CD Reviews

Great stuff
cadams | USA | 10/15/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I heard this CD playing at FNAC in Paris two years ago. I bought it and 'Chagrin Seulement' and 'Une Tsigane' are now always on my laptop (and therefor always where I am). These guys play great and sing greater. The rawness and elemental qualities of the music make this a must have CD in any international music collection"
Bent bluegrass played by Cossacks on methamphetamine.
Frank Camm | Northern Virginia | 03/22/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Closer to human speed than I recall on their eponymous 1999 CD, but still it generates a sense of bent bluegrass played by Cossacks on methamphetamine. Minor chords and ancient shadows have hooks in their souls, and they play like demons striving for the light. Remember to look for the strange attractor that offers an archetypal inner sstructure for the whirling, wild sparks of music. Focus of the calm center and let the whirling particles around it just fly right by. Live performance brings hints of Negresses Vertes. Stand-out: tr 13-Bride in a red dress (one instrument hands off to another, rotating a formidable pulse of power)."
Some of most amazing music and creative virtuostic musicians

(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you haven't seen theese guys live yet you are missing some of the most inspiring and electrifing musicians of our time. Raw gypsy that will make any of your hairs stand up!
I hope they make more albums in the near future."
