This is the blend used by four musical vagabonds to chase after the myth of unchained melancholy. With polka, klezmer and ‘gypsy’ sounds, they explore the Slavic soul deep into the Orient. A good portion of swing has been stirred in too by these string gourmets, somewhere far away in the wide blue yonder.
