TSCD914 GYPSY MUSIC FROM MACEDONIA & NEIGHBOURING COUNTRIES

‘If davul and zurna are not present,’ runs the Turkish proverb, ‘I cannot be a bride.’ The coupling of drum (davul) and double-reed pipe (zurna), heard in many regions of the world, is particularly widespread among the gipsies of the Balkans. Collector Wolf Dietrich has followed the trail of its ‘vital and impulsive irresistibility’ from Greece to Kosovo, Rumania and Turkey, his selection climaxing in an astounding 17 minute suite of tunes from Macedonia played by two Albanian pipers.
