Polish Orange World Records introduces Dobranotch ("good night" in Russian), a quintet with members from Lebanon, Moldova and Russia, originally founded in Nantes, but now operating from St. Petersburg, where they bring their personal variant of Eastern European music. In Western European record stores Dobranotch might easily be classified as Gypsy music, but actually the band plays interpretations of Russian folk music and Jewish klezmer with a hint of an Arabic rhythm added in for goo measure (the darbuka and daf of percussionist Ussama Shakhin). And to think that all this started as an Irish/Celtic folk project! The title of the album refers to cocek, a musical genre native to Bulgaria, Serbia and Romania that we now all know and love as Balkan brass. Drago mi shto zapoznav ("a pleasure to meet you")!
