  • INFINITY

    9,90 

    Following a one-year maternity leave, „Infinity“ shows us a matured Warsaw Village Band with incredible compositions and several Polish guests. The idea of the album’s title came along the need to take a dip in tradition, derive from it and create contemporary and modern compositions – to inspire other generations.

  • The long expected studio album of Huun-Huur-Tu was created in cooperation with famous singer Sainkho from Tuva. The aim was to produce an album based on ballads, with sounds of silence and nature, closed to the great environment of central Asia. The listener can dive into mother nature’s womb and take time for “Mother-Earth! Father-Sky!”.

  • This CD is of particular interest because it marks the first time the Moscow Art Trio worked with an orchestra. The album was recorded with the Norwegian Orchestra (artistic director– Terje Tønnesen). Mikhail Alperin referred to the compositions as music for an imaginary ballet in six pieces that fantasize on the rural topic. The sources of inspiration are multiple ranging from Sergey Paradjanov’s movies,weddings and Indian Raga.

    Payuta blends the sound of the Indian sitar with influences from pop, jazz and blues to form a unique musical current. A bubbling, seething, uncommonly rhythmic current in which musical reproductions of the past turn up like rocks at every bend. Riffs from Jumping Jack Flash merge effortlessly with the special aura of the Indian instrument. 

  • This DVD presents a documentary about Huun-Huur-Tu that covers the early years of the ensemble up to 2004. The main part is a concert recorded at Jazz Lines Festival 2002, Theater im Haus der Kunst, München.

  • A Polish television recording of the concert at the Kalicz Piano Festival shows the trio’s brilliance and humor, impressively accentuated by the facial expressions and body language of the three musicians. In addition to the eighty-minute concert, the DVD presents a lengthy interview with the ensemble recorded in Moscow in the early summer of 2006.

  • For his groundbreaking first solo CD, Willy assembled 40 players, from India’s master musicians to American virtuosi Howard Levy and Paul Wertico, to produce (with Warren Senders) what Rolling Stone called “[...] a many-layered fusion of folksong-writing, social criticism, as well as eastern wisdom, of Irish, Indian, and Caribbean blasts – all with disarming innocence”.

  • EgAri

    16,00 

    “EgAri” (“That’s it!” in Georgian) is a spectacular project of The Shin, which is shaped around traditional Georgian instrumental styles, polyphonic vocals, and folk dance. EgAri is a non-conventional hybrid of archaic and modern elements, Caucasian and non-indigenous instruments, startling Georgian harmonies and more familiar jazz threads. It reinitiates a peaceful dialogue between East and West, old and new, “ours” and “theirs”―a dialogue which has existed in Georgian culture for centuries.

  • Tango y mas allá is based on the tango, milonga and candombé musical styles. In addition to the conventional instruments (cello, flute, drums, percussion and bandoneón), the album also contains electronic sounds, e-piano, synthesizer. All these instruments join to form a unified whole. For the first time ever Luis Di Matteo uses the human voice on this CD, which was recorded in 2004. An instrumental-style voice (soprano) features very expressively on the album and gives a special quality to the music.  As the critic Ramón Gonzales declared: “Here, the great abilities of the artist are on display in three different areas, as composer/arranger, soloist and conductor”.

  • Delirious

    16,00 

    Delirious is the outcome of an unusual encounter between two entirely different musicians. Charles Petersohn on the one hand, a jazz DJ, electronic music producer, singer and “street poet,” Jasper van’t Hof on the other, World Music and jazz pianist, composer and arranger, internationally renowned through Pili Pili and other projects. The key to their collaboration is football in the broadest sense.
