"Greece/the Balkan's Martha Mavroidi has made one of the albums of the year" said SOTW's Chris P yesterday (yet again). It's called 'The Garden of Rila' & here are some snippets from those songs in live performance

Unfortunately it's expensive via usual web sources. Best price is probably CD Baby, but that's still over the odds

I agree, Chris. I have an inkling two copies may be on their way to our neck of the woods in due course from a celestial source (earthly name "CD Baby"). Hang the expense.

thanks ! It'll be interesting to see the sleeve notes, I only have the album on mp3 at the moment. I should have mentioned that legal downloads are easily findable for about £ 7 or less. Perhaps try dipping a toe with a track download of the sublime 'Ballada' as picked n played by Ian A. recently
