ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A journey that takes you travelling on a cool Mediterranean breeze to finally arrive echoing in the Balkan mountains. Re-arrangements of traditional melodies from Cyprus and countries around the Mediterranean sea and original material. Little pockets of a-capella polyphonic singing.
