About the recording:
DROBINSKA, the acoustic project named for its leader Oleg Drobinsky, is a unique example of Balkan music, with all its melodic strength, complex rhythms, and emotional expressiveness.

DROBINSKA is Drobinsky's first individual project after his many experiences with other world music bands. This is a unique alloy of Bulgarian, Macedonian, Serbian and Romanian melodies that he gathered while traveling in Hungary, Romania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and picked up in the Conservatory of Chisinau (in Kishinev, Moldova).

In the Conservatory, he also met Martin Nyaga, who was instrumental in launching the DROBINSKA project. Oleg had in his hands many melodies from a great variety of people, and many aficionados of Eastern European culture would say that they do not belong together. But what 'world music' means here is a way for a group of artists to develop this variety of melodies into the concentrated spirit of living tradition, in order to convey a newly discovered world of emotions that unite body and spirit, and the cultural message of the often misunderstood region.

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.
