Playing ’Til Your Soul Comes Out! Music of Macedonia

Various Artists SFW50415

Playing ’Til Your Soul Comes Out! Music of Macedonia is a sonic time capsule of the 1960s, a significant moment in this region of Southeastern Europe when the style of both life and music were in a state of rapid flux. Seventeen documentary gems from noted music and dance ethnographer Martin Koenig’s extensive collection—never before heard on a recording as they appear here—include three Macedonian traditions: female village singing, Romani (Gypsy) zurli-tapan ensembles, and the Ottoman Turkish urban ensemble called čalgija. Koenig and ethnomusicologist Sonia Seeman provide historical background and unique insight into Macedonia’s rich musical culture.
