Cottifogli's songs are carefully constructed from a world of elements, yet they are all of a piece, a Mediterranean exploration that never settles for the obvious, whether it is the mix of Indian-tinged scat singing and accordion riffs generated on "An Italian In Bombay" or the Brecht-inspired "Peddlars," a swirl of Viennese waltz and Italian café punctuated with insane accordion lines and some very aggressive drumming. ..

The album's subtitle, "I come from the North, but I am from the South," reflects Cottifogli's nativity (she is from the Alps, daughter of a Slovenian speaking mother and a southern Italian father), but more importantly, her philosophy; she is an urban, modern musician whose creative heart is sitting by the sea, looking out on a world of ideas, always anticipating one more journey east, west or south. - Cliff Furnald (read the full RootsWorld review)

Please note!
Most of our CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and we are not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever we can, we used recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
