Simon & Garfunkel were an American folk rock duo consisting of singer-songwriter Paul Simon and singer Art Garfunkel. They were one of the best-selling music groups of the 1960s and became counterculture icons of the decade's social revolution, alongside artists such as the Beatles, the Beach Boys, and Bob Dylan. Their biggest hits—including "The Sound of Silence" (1964), "Mrs. Robinson" (1968), "Bridge over Troubled Water" (1969), and "The Boxer" (1969)—reached number one on singles charts worldwide. They won 10 Grammy Awards and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990.
"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!
