The violins rage when necessary and provide a light backing when necessary. The cymbalum can be used for a bouncing background or for a seething solo passage. Listener be prepared: You're in for a joyride through the musical traditions of Eastern Europe in less than an hour. Given the sudden popularity of Taraf de Haïdouks in the worldwide marketplace, one might wonder why the buzz erupted as it did. This disc answers that question quickly.
