RELEASED SEPTEMBER 2002
PRODUCED BY BALKANARAMA
RECORDED AT SEATTLE DRUM SCHOOL STUDIOS, SEATTLE, MAY-JUNE 2002
Black Sea is a five-song demo of our current sound.
Like many contemporary bands in the Balkans, we now use synthesizer instead of
accordion, and a drum set instead of hand drums. We also feature sax and
electric guitar more strongly than on Nonstop. Black
Sea includes two original songs in Balkan styles, selected from
several original compositions in our current repertoire. The CD includes complete lyrics and translations.
|1||The Earth Carries Me
|Hungarian Rom||Jeni jol||6:45|
|Music and lyrics by Jody Levinson||Dajcovo (9/8)||5:50|
|Music by Jody Levinson, lyrics by Marija Makrevska||Lesnoto||5:10|
|5||Black Sea (Cherno More)
