Debut album from the Greek trio ‘Rizà’, consisting of old traditional folk songs from Greece, mainly originated from the islands’ regions and Asia Minor west coast; all re-arranged with a contemporary approach and tuned in an acoustic mood. All tunes are sung in their original language, without adaptation or deviation from the traditional melodies, accompanied by atmospheric and sound collages that are deeply stirring and emotive. However there are neither any Greek traditional instruments involved nor any other eastern strings that would bring a distinctive Mediterranean sound. A rather western and even international approach to the far eastern music of Greece.
