Featuring sublime and unhinged music rarely heard outside of Northern Greece and Southern Albania, the performances presented in this collection span the range of plaintive, ancient dirges to hypnotic, droning dance pieces. The style, repertoire, and songs from this isolated region are unearthly in their euphonic appeal. Most of the music on this CD has not been issued since they were originally pressed on 78 rpm disc. A deep set of notes in a 12-page booklet is accompanied by comprehensive lyrical translations as well as original artwork by R. Crumb. This CD version includes as bonus tracks all four sides recorded in 1933 by the mysterious and archaic M. Harisis Epirotic Group. Respectfully crafted by Christopher King and Susan Archie for Angry Mom Records. Original artwork by Robert Crumb.
