Album Notes
Do you like to party?? I bet you do !!.
And what's the best of all: you don't have to be a Croatian to love this CD.
No strange lyrics you never heard about!! No rhythms that will make you look like you have two left feet !!
Just plain good old Polkas, Waltzes, even a Tarantellas, then some eastern European "Kolo" (a little faster Polka), then some Charleston, Boogie and Slow Rock.
Great music for your next party, wedding, picnic or just for singing along while you're taking a shower.
I've been playing music for over 45 years, first as a lead guitar player and back up vocal for bands OTOCANI, Mali Losinj, Croatia 1960-72, ADRIATICS New York 1972-75, KRISTALI New York 1975-85 and then as a keyboard player for the band TRI KANTUNA 2000-04 also from New York. During those years I toured the USA and Canada with many Croatian recording artists like: Kico Slabinac, Opatijski Suveniri, Betty Jurkovic, Lidija Percan and others. I play mostly Croatian folk music and traditional songs and dances from all over Croatia, also many Pop songs by top Croatian recording artists. Most of the music on this CD is arranged in contemporary, upbeat, dance and party styles, mixed with sounds of traditional musical instruments like accordion and mandolin. For example click on track #5 on the left and hear how the song "Ciribiribela Mare moja" sounds in Charleston style with Honky-Tonky piano. Or track #7, my song "Leto i fjaka" (Summer and laziness) arranged in a Boogie style mixed with accordion and mandolin. Take a break and listen to all the songs.
This CD contains 12 tracks of instrumentally arranged Croatian Folk songs, compiled into nine medleys, and three individual songs.

It will make you feel like dancing. Excellent choice
This is a wonderful CD for someone who is looking for an upbeat modern version of the more traditional sounds. You will feel like dancing all the way back to the old country for a visit. Great background music for entertaining. I will probably at some point hire the band. This music appeals to all ages and can be appreciated by all ethnic groups. Two thumbs up !!! A+++ I bought two sets. One for home and one to give to my Croatian parents. Love them!!!

Music that make's you feel young again!
Frist let me say thank you Ned for the excellent work that you have done to make these cd's. I have enjoyed listening to these cd's over and over.. The only bad thing about the cd's is that I will have to give them up because they are my mother's Christmas present... I look foward to the CFP 3 cd. Let me know when you have it ready for sale.... Happy Holiday's Everyone!!!

A Nice New Arrangement of the Old Standards
A great compilation of the old songs my grandparents used to sing and teach us grandkids. The use of Roland synthesizers made the music even more dynamic.


Happy Music
If you are looking for music to make you feel happy, this is the CD for you. No matter where you are from in Croatia, there is a song here that you will recognize. The music will make you want to dance........even if you don't have a partner! This CD definitely deserves the 5 star rating that I gave it. Thumbs up! Bravo!
