Format: Audio CD
East meet Easts is a 14 pieces filled album that is overwhelming about 65 minutes at all.
Eastern Folkmusic meets an incredible strings section and sometimes vocals that I like and that I don't (!!!!) like.
Kroke, the incredible Trio from Krakow, Poland is working together with Kennedy in the whole Eeast European music history and they give their chosen music a modern touch with sometimes jazzy influences I like and a really cool picked in e-violin. The album is almost very danceable and that is quite lovely. I like those tunes.
1.) Ajde Jano ... is the first track it has a really danceable lovely rhythm. I remember that tune cuz I heard it as opening track at Krokes solo tour this year in February in Germany. I absolutely don't know the vocals. I dunno why. I think after listening to it for even more times I will got to love it. I see small kids dancing at bloomy fields when I am listening to that tunes.
2.) Lullaby for Kamila ... is a melancholy tune. I really love it. I love all tragical melancholy sounds. They make me smile and the simple *mmmh mmmmmh* backup vocals are breathtaking for me.
3.) T 4.2 (hint:Tea for two) is just cool ... I heard it for the first time at the Berlin Museumsinsel Gig last year in Berlin. ... And well I was dancing on my chair ... ... (the rough mix of that piece is at "Ten pieces to save the world" without Kennedys e-violin ---> he goes crazy ... *yummy*)
4.) Eden ... is a track that is on "Ten Pieces to save the world" by Kroke as well without Kennedys e-violin and that was my favourite one of their album. It is a good way straight to Eden. That is honey for ears ( ... with feet ) FOLKY ROCK'N'ROLL, Yeah!)
5.) Dafino ... mmmmh ... that is "stolen" at one Slawish wedding party ... maybe ... ... It sounds really lovely ...

Format: Audio CD
Sublime, intriguing music ... the seductive & sultry voice of Natacha Atlas singing "Ajde Jano" grabbed my attention when I heard this CD for the first time. Add to this, the unique improvisations and "voice" of the violin played by Nigel Kennedy - this CD is dynamite. The whole CD is filled with traditional music, captivating, soulful, haunting, emotional melodies & tunes from the past. Updated & electrified, the musical phrases and harmonics are explored and improvised by the Kroke Band & Nigel Kennedy. They create feelings of ecstasy and joy in the listener. Nigel Kennedy and the Kroke Band are classically trained musicians who have *fully* awakened to the "village sound" with *all* the expansive possibilites for interpretaion and freedom that this implies. These musicians make the most of their classically trained precision and contrasting dsicovery of freedom - the harmonics & stylizations resemble that of Hungary, Romania, Moldavia, & even Transylvania, along with the occsaional mournful or ecsatatic klezmer. My other favorites besides, "Ajde Jano", are "T 4.2" which has melodies I find myself humming throughout the day after listening to the CD. "Eden", "Dafino", and "Ederlezi" are tunes I have heard before, played by this group they take on a whole new explosive dimension. Their rendition of the famous folk tune, "Jovano, Jovanke", from Macedonia, has me up on my feet and dancing each and every time I hear it ...
The trance inducing violin playing, the free-form klez and E. Euro gypsy style plus classical precision to control the listener's emotions is an unbeatable combination. These guys create spiralling musical pathways, taking the listener to the here-to-fore unexplored universe of traditional Balkan & East European village music which they redesign for modern ears ...

As someone who was born into an ethnically diverse family and spent the first part of her life in the former Yugoslavia, it was mesmerizing for me to listen to this CD. I have heard melodies like "Ajde Jano," "Dafino," "Jovano, Jovanke," and "Ederlezi," throughout my childhood and hearing them again brings back so much emotion and so many memories. This is wonderful music and I never tire of hearing it performed in new arrangements and by new performers. Enjoy!

Format: Audio CD
I am a big lover of classical music and somehow I got my hands around this music. I can only agree a hundred percent with the other listeners that this music is crowling deep inside your soul, makes you want to smile, and to cry at the same time. You will not forget it! It is beautiful and relaxing in some parts, others simply take away your breath and you feel (finally) something about your own passion (again) with this music. Yes, you can imagine people dancing and you can feel the fire of love and dance, intertwined with an endless feeling of happiness.
I have been to Krakow and with this music in the back of my mind I am looking forward to going back again and to hopefully find folk bands which are similar to this astonishing master piece performed by Nigel Kennedy.
Enjoy!
Uwe

I have owned this CD for some years and it is possibly my most favourite of favourites. Something has happened to one of the tracks so I am buying another copy. I can't bear to have it incomplete. This CD speaks to my soul with every piece. When you think you have heard the best of the CD the next just grabs your heart. The combination of Nigel Kennedy and the Kroke Band is absolutely superb. I can listen to them for hours on end. If you are a Nigel Kennedy fan this one is a must. No, a need.
