downloaded the album...it's beautiful...i can't, no, i REFUSE to believe this guy is 19 and recorded it himself....
it reminds me of Goran Bregovic's Orchestra for weddings and funerals, the whole gypsy sad trumpet thing...
it was always obvious hat balkan gypsy music was very special ( ever since i saw Kusturica's "Time of the gypsies" that was before he went all wacko chetnik on our asses ), but what bothered me were the gypsy vocals that gave it that nasty balkan spin....this was the combo i've been waiting for, a blend of american folk vocals and the gypsy trumpets and violins...
