cd cover Miquel Gil with Savinna Yannatou
En Concert -CD and DVD set (Galileo MC)

An epic event: the meeting of two great European singers, and backed by an incredible ensemble made of Primavera en Salonico and Orqestra Arabe de Barcelona. CD and DVD (PAL format, playable on computers and most DVD players). Highly recommended.

Listen:
Van tres
Bandereta
Wa Habibi
Ballo Sardo

   

From the RootsWorld review:
Gil's characteristic growling, flamenco-tinged vocals are the highlight, but he leaves room aplenty for his guests and accompanists, and the DVD (shot expertly from varied perspectives - listen at full volume for a full sense of the dynamics) enables listeners unfamiliar with his music to appreciate the range and nuance of sounds emanating from this transcendental convergence. Bout is a gifted, consummately expressive singer whose dramatic presence commands without dominating, visibly affecting the rapt musicians as much as the audience (e.g., “Van tres” - with a lovely interplay between Gil and Bout, or “Adieu paure carnavas/Wa Habibi,” with Yannatou joining). In a concert where every piece constitutes a highlight, among the astounding, culturally uncategorizable offerings are the final two, “Canço dels traginers” and “Ballo sardo/Cavalli d'Aràbia," with Yannatou and Gil pairing off. The finale is a wonder to behold, confirming Yannatou - in her terrifyingly diverse repertoire of swooping overtones, ululations, glossolalia, shrieks, cries, and whispers - among the most exciting vocal artists from around the region and far beyond. For a bracing sense of the vitality of contemporary pan-Mediterranean music, start here. - Michael Stone

Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America.

They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
