Description

Fires on the Shore on CD

'...Night settles over a distant gypsy camp, and as the fires begin to smolder, out of the smoke steps Maritza. An accordion swells, a violin yearns for lost love, an oboe answers with sweet tears. The tambourine dances, and the doumbek would take flight with the sparks if the driving bass and guitar weren't there to keep these musicians on the ground...' Based in Decorah, Iowa, Maritza transforms traditional Balkan, Klezmer, Greek and Gypsy tunes into their trademark blend of 'Balkan Boogie, Romany Romp and Klezmer Kutups'(TM). Maritza's repertoire includes hauntingly beautiful melodies with minor flavors reminiscent of the passionate history of Europe and Russia, lively Jewish horas and frailachs, traditional Romany (Gypsy) folk music, and twisting rhythmic line-dance tunes from Bulgaria, Romania, Macedonia, Greece and Cyprus. Maritza features Pine Wilson on accordion, Greg Huang-Dale on guitar and hammered dulcimer, Jeroen van Tyn on violin, Rob van Tyn on oboe and Rob Hervey on electric bass and guitar.
