    Márta Sebestyén and Muzsikás -
    Márta Sebestyén I think regards her self as another intrument and not a vocalist in the accepted sense as this example shows. Some of her later cds take time to appreciate as the music is elaborate in the extreme and not the traditional Eastern European harmonys at all
    Muzsikás is an acoustic band in its own right and puts to shame much so called pop music musician, and hearing a genuine double bass ( I assume it is) in a band rather than electric bass is lovely shock, shows how poor electric bass is really




    gong linna Chinese Folksongs ( ARC Music EUCD 2129/LC05111) A wonderful recording

    http://store.arcmusic.co.uk/chinese-folksongs.html

    perunika trio ( ARC Music eg A Bright Star has risen ( ARC EUCD 2409 or Introducing Perunika Trio ARC LC 11067/INTRO109CD)

    Corsica Chants Polyphonique
    (E Voce Di U Cumune) Harmonia Mundi HMA 1951256 Musique 'D'Abord ( budget label now, I bought it on LP when it was a full price item, I recently bought the cd which is just as good)

    Saw Gong Linna at the Kaustinen folk festival ten or more years ago - I've still got the Chinese good luck thing from that concert hanging from my standard lamp.

    Just ordered the CD by Perunika Trio - this thread is hurting the purse :)
