ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Recorded and produced entirely by Adam Good, a New York based musician (bass player for HARMONIA, guitarist in NIKITOV and SIDESHOW) fascinated by Eastern European music and in particular "Izvorno" (folk music) of Macedonia. Eastern melodies accompanied by meditative drones with quirky "odd meter" rhythms. Every track features Adam and special guests on folk instruments playing familiar traditional tunes (Pajdushko, Mashkato, Baba Dzhurdzha, Rajkos, Topansko) and original melodies in rhythms of the region (Beranche, Chochek, Ruchenitsa).

Adam Good - tambura, kaval
Matt Moran - tupan, dumbek
Jerry Kisslinger - tupan
Timothy Quigley - dumbek, def
Jeff Fine - kaval
Jodi Hewat - vocals
Ramy al Aasar - dumbek

"Good is good at what he does, playing quick dance tunes on tambura with an intricate style -- the music goes well with wine. Dances is a sure bet for Balkan dancers out for a light, rapid chochek, or for Markos Vamvakaris or Andy Irvine enthusiasts, or anyone else, for that matter, who wants to hear good music in uneven meter!"
-- Judith Gennett (www.greenmanreview.com)

When you have had it with the American airwaves, take a trip to Macedonia and the Balkans for an exquisite, elaborately elegant album of acoustic folk music. Recorded and produced entirely by Adam Good, a New York based musician fascinated by Macedonian tambura, kaval and "Izvorno" (folk music) of Macedonia, this album, light on its feet, will be appreciated by professional ethnomusicologists as well as those who just like to thumb through the World section.

Amazing rare music that never gets better with every listen
This CD is packed with wonderfully performed music that will leave you in a blur.

Note to musicians - this album is a clinic on how to play quickly, accurately, and with personality and soul. It will either send you running to the woodshed or to make a bonfire out of your instruments.
