ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Songs of the Heart - A Journey Through World Music" is a beautiful musical exploration of the traditional music of India, Cuba, Romania, Hungary, Greece, Sardegna and the USA.

The songs come from a variety of sources: folk song collections, popular recordings and oral traditions. After being carefully selected, the songs were re-composed for voice & instrumentation.

This recording has a depth and earthiness often associated with world music, the meditative and spiritual quality of ritual music, and the technical and harmonic brilliance of classical music. It is music for the heart, spirit and mind.

Christine Ghezzo is a singer with a mesmerizing and fluid voice, who is able to shift her tone quality to suit a variety of musical traditions. She is an emerging artist, but began performing at the age of seven, and has sung in a multitude of concerts and festivals throughout the world.

Christine was born in Queens, NY - the most diverse place in the world, which remains an important source of inspiration in her love of exploring world cultures and music. She is the daughter of two musicians who influence and guide her: Dinu Ghezzo (Composer/Conductor/Pianist)who is an integral part of this recording, and Marta Ghezzo (Musicologist). Christine is an apprentice of the Indian Master Musician, Pandit Kamal Mishra at the Shikshayatan Institute.

"Songs of the Heart - A Journey Through World Music"
Aptly titled Songs of the Heart, Christine Ghezzo compellingly sings the soulful call of songs from many lands with heartfelt honesty and beauty. This CD is a total joy. As a passionate singer of world music, Christine colorfully takes you around the globe with her rich depth of musicianship and warmth of spirit.
