"The 2005 release by the Flemish folk rock band features three great female vocalists, Kadril singer Mariken Boussemaere, English singer Heather Grabham and the wonderful Hungarian singer Szilvia Bognár. The songs include traditional Flemish, Hungarian and British emigration songs and tunes.
Flemish band Kadril gives us a history lesson on a disc with this multi-faceted release. The nineteen songs here loosely weave the story of emigration to America through the port of Antwerp during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. They've invited a few friends along to help tell the story. English singer Heather Grabham, Flemish singer Mariken Boussemaere, and Hungarian singer Szilvia Bognar lend their voices to the tale. Adding touches such as clawhammer banjo, brass band, and spaghetti western guitars to the traditional buzzy, drony Flemish sound makes this one of the more variegated releases to come down the pike in a while."

Besh o droM's serve up that mix of differing styles and genres so loved by the fans of East European music: hot Balkan rhythms and gypsy tunes spiced with a sense of humour and modernity. They are frequent guests of the main festivals around Europe and America. This album follows the path of the previous two, but is more diverse and more up-to-date.
On the release Besh o droM are joined by two popular female singers: Ági Szalóki and Mónika Mitsoura.
Besh o droM = Wild Gypsy music plundered from the folk music of the Hungarian, Rumanian, Bulgarian, Southern Slav, Greek people - with a distinct Gypsy, Turkish and Middle Eastern flavour.
