All 4 GO EAST CDs in one bundle for a special price: Bulgarian Passion, Polish Spirit, Russian Soul, Turkish Obsession.
This Go East Compilation Series of initially four CDs provides us with new windows into the music of our neighbours to the east. No more rehashing of balalaika and other clichés, it tunes us into a wide range of temperaments and brings us closer to little-known musical cultures of the eastern world. Old melodies and new songs, all of them interpreted by outstanding musicians from the respective countries.
A conscious decision has been made here to avoid the run-of-the-mill “Best Of” assortment in which the same artists appear again and again. The four compilations are not intended to be representative, but were put together entirely subjectively according to our own taste. A different mood prevails on each of the four CDs.
From Russia we hear a hint of melancholy in music which moves us to the core. Bulgaria stands for outstanding and unusual choral works. Poland is deeply rooted in its rural traditions of folklore and Klezmer. And Turkey draws from the old musical collections of the Osmanic period, while also presenting us with elements astonishing and new.
The music in the four compilations is played exclusively by musicians who have performed in concert all over the world.
As in two hundred other JARO productions, here you will find the extraordinary, chosen with care.
The slogan for the series could well read Go East. Journey with us to the soul of the music from Russia, Poland, Bulgaria and Turkey!
