cd cover Turlu Tursu
Accordion 'n drum 'n bass (Home Records, Belgium)

Turlu Tursu attack the accordion traditions of the world with a mix of clever arrangements and spirited improvisations of standards from European music (Balkans, Celtic music) as well as musical forms from around the globe: Indian ragas, Arab maqams, music of the Caribbean and more. The accordion is vessel, the bass and drums the anchor. It's agressive, witty and powerful.

The band says:
The Turlu Tursu band performs in a non-typical way tunes from the numerous traditions of accordion throughout the world. High-spirited and festive music group, Turlu Tursu offers a subtle mix of highly sophisticated arrangements and unrestrained improvisations.

The band's repertoire embraces the standards of traditional European music (Balkans, Celtic music) as well as less known musical forms (Indian ragas, Arab maqams, music of the Caribbean.). The accordion (instrument originally made in Germany) actually travelled with the sailors all over the Colonies. That's how it came into the hands of the Zulus, Colombians, Arab people, and was well integrated in many other cultures less known to the general audience.

The original style of Turlu Tursu, a great diversity, though made coherent thanks to the central use of accordion, allowed the band to be invited in very diverse musical meetings: world music festivals (Sfinks Root Rally.), jazz festivals (Gaume Jazz Festival.), street theatre festivals (Chassepierre.), and festivals for children (Enfanfare), accordion festival (Tournai Accordion Festival), etc.

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. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use 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.
