Live at the Music Meeting

Baraná & Co 

LopLop; Llr 11, 2003

 “Live music on CD is rarely really live, and often the applauding annoys rather than anything else. Baraná & Co is an exception. The more often you hear the concert, the more you get the feeling you missed a big adventure. One hears the trombone of Kees Adolfsen soloing over the difficult rhythms of the percussionists. One hears Ernst Reijseger torturing his cello in order to keep up with the high tempos. One hears fascinating choir singing after hot violin solos by Monique Lansdorp. It’s the combination of traditional Turkish string music, exciting improvisations, a bit of Tango, all based on poetry of Yunus Emre. If only I had been there!” – Deventer Dagblad
