The Sounds of the Vanishing World - Kroke
In a world of unlimited communication and millennium hysteria, Kroke want us to think about things that are really important in life: Earth, Water, Fire and Love (all titles on this recording). It 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. These three musicians, well known in Klezmer circles, are always exciting and full of surprises, breaking new ground with their music at each turn. This 2000 release, like their others, was produced in Krakow, itself a symbol of 'the disappearing world.'
Seventh Trip - Kroke
Kroke didn't get lost in the dark grounds of a midlife crisis, and this seventh album is more than an itch of desire. Their music has developed from what is regarded as traditional klezmer but their music is definately forward-looking, perhaps even a little avant garde.
Spiewam zycie – I sing life - Edyta Geppert and Kroke
The well-known Polish klezmer innovators join with one of Poland's finest singers of folk and chanson for a special release of music that avoids being penned in by categories like world music, folk or chanson. The distinctive instrumental style of Kroke, based on their Jewish and East European roots, joins perfectly the expressive voice of Edyta and the ambitious lyrics of the Polish songs.
Quartet - Live - Kroke
The two Kroke concerts at Radio Kraków Studio on October 9th and 10th, 2003 were something special. They were concerts of a group that after years of intensive touring all over Europe felt obliged to thank their friends in their home town for their long-time support. And there were so many friends to thank that it turned out to be two concerts.
ten pieces to save the world - Kroke
The Polish trio of Tomasz Kukurba (viola; violin; voice; wind instruments; whistling; piano; percussion; mouth percussion), Jerzy Bawol (accordion), Tomasz Lato (double bass) present music on this 2003 recording that may not save the world, but will certainly make it a more interesting place to visit!
Live in Forde - Tindra and Kroke
The Norwegian folk-root trio meets the driving Polish band in a live concert. Not as improbable a paring as it might seem, they mesh and clash with energy and grace.
