Traditional folks songs arranged by Nikola Parov and Márta Sebestyén.
Music of the Balkans married with Irish and Greek, Indian lullabies combine to make this a unique and beautifully delicate recording. As always though it is Marta"s singing that tugs the heart-strings.
"4 Stars - Excellent - ...one more global experiment that works quite beautifully..."
"...KISMET spans the globe, lovingly and with a loving spirit....There is a cohesion within exploration here..."
"...the gifted Hungarian singer zigzags from Ireland to India, bring[ing] us closer to a 21st-century inevitability --one big worldwide music culture, into which regional sounds are absorbed..."
"...an effort to be highly praised..."
"...Nobody else has a voice like this: low but sharp as a knife, with a wide, easy vibrato, perfect diction and lazy, looping, Byzantine ornaments..."
