ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Zabe I Babe's music is a kaleidoscopic, cranked up, often punked out tour of the Bosnian radio dial. From hardcore traditional harmony singing and gypsy brass band party music to emo/techno pop, it's a trip worth taking. Literally "Frogs and Grandmothers," their name is the Bosnian equivalent of "apples and oranges."

Formed in 1991 by Bosnian ethnomusicologist Mirjana Lausevic and multi-genre performer Tim Eriksen (the band Cordelia's Dad, the film Cold Mountain), Zabe teamed up with the phenomenal Macedonian Roma group "Ansambl Teodosijevski" in 1997 to record the stunning, one-of-a-kind world music collage "Drumovi" ("Routes.") If you're looking for intensity, surprise, tradition and real invention, you'll find it here.

Tamara Turner, CD Baby

It's an unforgettable trip worth taking.
So you have switched off top 40 radio in exasperation and are digging through those worn out CDs of the same old recycled, reincarnated, mass produced, generic, American muse? Consider an escapist exit into a tour of the Bosnian radio dial, with traditional vocal and popular Bosnian dance music in this kaleidoscopic of cranked up, often punked out variety. From all-out traditional harmony singing and gypsy brass band party music to emo and techno pop, it's an unforgettable trip worth taking; a change of perspective for bored ears like yellow-colored glasses for fatigued eyes. Hardcore World music lovers will have something to cheer about too- an all around fabulous album.

Music you can't stop listening to.
This CD is a fabulous collection of music. I listened to it several times within the first days of getting it and continue to return to it every couple days. The first song is amazing, as are all of the songs on the first half of this CD--very catchy, very passionate, very powerful. Tim Eriksen's voice is as strong as ever. If you liked his singing on Cold Mountain or with Cornelia's Dad, then check him out singing these very different type of songs. The second half of the CD contains more traditional singing by the women in the group--those songs are hauntingly beautiful. This CD is fabulous. I am so glad I got it.
