Sounds from Giving Voice

This 8-track release with legendary John Wood (of Nick Drake fame)

comprises material gleaned from years of research into the forgotten songs and sounds of these Isles.
ES ***** : a shining and original talent


Mariana Sadovska & Christian Thomé: VESNA

The ‘Ukrainian Bjork’: in her furious performances Mariana Sadovska crosses all borders: archaic midsummer night invocations, wedding songs and migrant chants from remote villages of rural Ukraine get a singular turn and transmute into contemporary sound that spans from folk to avant-garde. VESNA (SPRING) was inspired by Ukrainian Traditional songs and was composed with jazz drummer Christian Thomé .
