Format: Audio CD
This is yet another excellent album by the Moldovan band. The album is very elaborate instrumentally and sung beautifully, with themes from the Romanian/Moldovan folklore masterfully blended with elements of modern rock. Most songs are sung in Romanian (there is one sung in English). For people not familiar with Zdob Si Zdub (which literally means Zdob and Zdub, to my Romanian ear they sound like two people's names (unusual as they may be), although they could very well suggest a rhythmic strong beat), the band is hugely popular in Romania and Moldova (because of common language and musical themes), and it toured with Hubert von Goisern in 2007 on the first leg of his Linz Europa Tour. Ethnomecanica is one of my favorite albums, it is very powerful rock but at the same time very musical, the sound quality is exceptional, and the blending of the musical themes and styles is spectacular.
