Listen to "Heavy Heaven"
The Danubians are Amy Denio-vocals, accordion, alto sax & bass, Pavel Fajt-drums, and half of Hungary's Kampec Dolores; Csaba Hajnocy-guitar, sampler & Gabi Kenderesi-vocals, violin. Recorded live last year in Italy & Hungary, at points this features Csaba playing samples of Amy & Gabi's voice, while they sing along live with the samples! Nine charming songs that chart the territory where Eastern European folk influences meet with rock, improvisation, soaring vocals and accordions.
|"...the Danubians' self-titled debut gleams. Recorded live in Italy and Hungary...the album is a fascinating clash of cultures, with the vocal performances evoking the work of Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares, violinist Iva Bittova and Meredith Monk. The Balkan inflections - the swoops & trills - are frequent...it's an irresistable draw into the Danubians' multi-layered sonic world of syncopated accordion, drone violin, staccato-riffed electric guitars, gutsy alto saxophone, art-rock industrial drumming, electronic sampling and gleeful vocal swirls. Nine tracks: Nine winners!" - Schwann Inside|

Please note!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.
