EXOTIKA (2009)

Released on Von Records 2009.

Exotika represents voices that sing in invented cross-cultural languages, fused with exotic rhythms derived from ancient world music traditions.

This recording features twenty eight musicians and singers from all around the world and the process of creating this risqué adventure was a magnificent experience.

The ultimate quest of this album is to unite people and music as one voice, one world together, to stay strong in peace. There are no limitations and no rules, as music speaks, paints and seduces in one multi- cultural expression...
