    Departure

    16,00  5,00 

    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.

    Go East Compilation Series

    39,60  20,00 

    All 4 GO EAST CDs in one bundle for a special price. This series of initially four CDs provides us with new windows onto the music of our neighbours to the east. No mere rehashing of balalaika and other clichés, it tunes us into a wide range of temperaments and brings us closer to little-known musical cultures of the eastern world. 

  • This album was recorded after a two year hiatus of the band due to the sickness of Mikhail Alperin. The CD contains no traditional songs. The lyrics are written by Sergey Starostin and the compositions by Mikhail Alperin. The German Concerto Magazine has reviewed the album by saying: “[…] An excellent one, a masterly extremely interesting musical experience.”

  • This album was conceived and put together by Willy Schwarz. Most of the titles are the musicians’ own compositions. New stylistic elements have been added to traditional themes, and new lyrics written– resulting in something that is new and yet seemingly familiar to us.
