Notes and Editorial Reviews
La Nef takes us on a journey through Thrace and Epirus via traditional music and songs from these mountainous regions of Greece. Using a diverse range of instruments, including bendir, riqq, bodhran, shawm, and hurdy-gurdy, the eclectic musicians who collaborated on this project play a selection of rare pieces that have been preserved from oblivion by geographical isolation. The musicians of La Nef explore an extraordinary range of rhythms and modes in the dances and songs --including lupchevo, paidushko, and yanino -- recorded on Musiques des montagnes (Music of the Mountains). The songs treat themes such as exile (Den tin pernis, Xenitemeno, Mavro khelidhoni, Thalassaki), grief, and the struggle for freedom (Oso varoun, Danse de Zalongou).
