Balkan Song and Hurdy Gurdy madness

Versatile Bosnian singer Natasa Mirkovic performed opera, jazz and rock as well as traditional and gypsy song before fleeing war-torn Sarajevo and settling in Austria where she met hurdy-gurdy maestro Matthias Loibner whilst singing with the celebrated Sandy Lopicic Orkestar. With intense, expressive feeling she joins her exquisite vocals to the exotic yet strangely familiar sounds of the ancient hurdy-gurdy. The programme includes Bosnian and Serbian folk song, quirky Alpine tunes, nursery rhymes and sprightly hurdy-gurdy madness with electronic effects, and won the duo a prestigious Austrian World Music Award in 2005. Expect to be enchanted.
