"Sounds from the Vanishing world" is the name of Kroke's new CD. This may sound like a manifesto aimed at saving things of value, because yes, in a world of unlimited communication and millennium hysteria, Kroke do want us to think about things that are really important in life: "Earth" "Water" "Fire" or "Love", for example, to mention titles on this CD.
However "Sounds from the Vanishing world" is also about the important events of the last decades. Basing their work on the Eastern European and Balkans tradition of Klezmer music, they also include jazz, improvisation, pop, avant-garde music and much more. The music of these three excellent musicians, well known in Klezmer circles, is always exciting and full of surprises. You even get to feel the enjoyment they have in breaking new ground with their music!
KROKE and ORIENTE Musik received the German Phonogram Critics Award 2000 for this record.
