Saz'iso

At Least Wave Your Handerchief At Me

GLITTERBEAT RECORDS



CD

Released: 13th Oct 2017

£9.99


Gorgeous, spirited and deeply moving, these Mesmerising arabesques & heart-breaking laments make for A thrilling introduction to Saze, one of Europe’s richest but most overlooked musics.

“Albanian saze is a haunting, often melancholy style that features clarinet, violin and complex iso-polyphonic singing that combines at least two melody lines. This powerful music is little known outside southern Albania, but that could change thanks to Saz’iso, a group of virtuoso musicians who came together with help from Joe Boyd, a producer who has worked with everyone from Nick Drake and Fairport Convention to Cubanismo and Songhai.” - The Guardian. “Boyd wanted to record Saz’iso’s music as though it were a Blue Note session or Deutche Grammophon string quartet, and their debut is refreshingly free of the hi-def faux intimacy that plagues world releases” - The Wire.
