liner notes: Traditional oriental meets contemporary Western ideas of music
European ears will consider it folk, Asian ears will hear contemporary improvised music: "Kara Deniz âEUR" Black Sea". The superb Turkish multi-instrumentalist Burhan Ã-çal and the Tartar guitarist Enver Izmailov present an amazing CD uniting the traditional oriental and contemporary Western ideas of music. Based on material written by Izmailov, the 9 compositions confront Uzbekian and Tartaric folk songs with improvisation. Enver Izmailov is one of the most interesting musicians of the former USSR, his amazing ten-finger tapping technique allows him to combine highly complex melodies and accompaniment simultaneously without using overdubs. The second in this perfect pair, Burhan Ã-çal, adds his energetic improvisations using a large range of Turkish percussion and string instruments. The result is Oriental music set against the background of a subtle understanding for European music âEUR" masterly, emotional, crossing cultural boundaries. It is the first release outside Russia featuring Enver Izmailov. And for Burhan Ã-çal it means his first CD after almost three years.
