Canary Records owner (and a rather fine experimental musician himself) Ian Nagoski should be commended for his work in bringing to life so many wonderful albums from the turn of the 20th Century cut by Balkan and Jewish musicians who left their home countries and made quite good names for themselves in places like New York City. These recordings are lovingly restored, and apparently are leftover tracks transferred from 78rpm discs for a forthcoming 5-volume / 6-LP series to be issued in early 2019. Considering how lovingly Ian treats this material, this upcoming collection sounds like a grand project!
Perhaps Albania’s most beautiful export, Swiss-based jazz singer Elina Duni captivates with this tune.
Eli Fara is a rather beautiful singer from Korçë, Albania. She does a sort-of pop-folk-chanteuse bit, and does it stunningly well.
