"Sounds of the Vanishing world" is the name of Kroke's new CD. This may sound like a manifesto aimed at saving things of value, because yes, in a world of unlimited communication and millennium hysteria, Kroke do want us to think about things that are really important in life: "Earth" "Water" "Fire" or "Love", for example, to mention titles on this CD. However "Sounds of the Vanishing world" is also about the important events of the last decades. Basing their work on the Eastern European and Balkans tradition of Klezmer music, they also include jazz, improvisation, pop, avant-garde music and much more. The music of these three excellent musicians, well known in Klezmer circles, is always exciting and full of surprises. You even get to feel the enjoyment they have in breaking new ground with their music!
The birdsong of sunrise in all its uninterrupted glory, free from the voiceover and music of traditional television. With the first glimmers of sunlight, the birds of Britain's woodland, heathland and parkland burst into song. This is an opportunity to sit back and enjoy a portrait of three very different habitats and the natural splendour of their distinctive chorus.
