Kali Deryav

This is the Demo of my band Kali Deryav. It's a project I'm really excited about, not only because of the music, but also because I'm playing with amazing musicians!

The name of the group means 'Black Sea' in Romani, and we play music from the Balkan peninsula, Turkey and the Caucasus. The Demo has 5 tracks:

· Horo se Igrae is a beautiful Bulgarian song.
· Padjernska Kopanitsa is a composition by me, attempting to imitate a Bulgarian/Macedonian style.
· Valle e Pogradecit is a dance tune from Pogradec, a city on the shores of the Ohrid Lake, in Albania.
· Edinaesetorca is a Kopanitsa (11/8) from Macedonia.
· Perifrona Me Glykia Mou is a traditional Greek song.

I convinced my fellow musicians of the beauty of copyleft, the Demo is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike License. So, if you enjoy the music, by all means, download them, share them, sell them and do whatever you wish with them. Just don't sue anyone for copyright infringement on a derivative work, and link to us :)

Also, follow us on SoundCloud and like us on Facebook. Cheers!

  1. Nice stuff :)
    Love the compound time signatures in this sort of Balkan music.

  2. I love those time signatures too, they're angular and pointy, but they still groove nicely.
    Thanks a lot for listening!
