This is the new cd edition of vol. 17 of The World Library, a survey of Romanian folk music recorded from the 1930’s to the 1950’s. It includes ballads, songs, dance tunes, ritual and pastoral music. The recording quality is excellent and the liner notes are very detailed and informatives but most important the traditional music you will hear is truly beautiful, both the vocal and instrumental performances are fascinating pieces of music you won’t hear anymore as most of this traditions are almost exctinct today or have been too much “folklorized”.
This volume was uploaded by a reader of this blog many months ago so i would like to thank him here.
