Kapela is a band of itinerant musicians who have gleaned from their tours a repertory of traditional music and song from the four corners of Europe and Scandinavia.
This disk presents pieces of music of multiple origins which have been selected for their beauty and purity. While each piece is unique and has its own historical tradition, all bear similar messages of joy or inner communion.
« These songs, these melodies...we have captured them along the road of our journeys, encountered them as we crossed paths with other friends and musicians.
They carry with them the imprint of all who have played them and who have carried them all the way to us.
Originating from Sardenia, Italy Occitania, Ukraine, Finland, Norway, from the Russian or Hungarian gypsies, they have traversed centuries and frontiers.
We have delicately enclosed them in this box, at least long enough for you to listen to them, but it won’t take them long to escape and be on their way again, off to delight the ears of other wayfarers. »
