Release Title:
In Transition
Release Date:
Ethno / World / Greece

The favourites of the international world music scene are here once again. Following two acclaimed albums and a break of more than 5 years, the eight-member Loxandra Ensemble is finally back with some new music. "In Transition" is the result – their most compelling and coherent work to date. This album marks a creative transition for the ensemble, featuring new members and some of their own compositions for the first time. The centuries-old music tradition of the melting pot that is Greece comes together with modern times and the here and now. At times infectious and danceable such as on "Kai Ti Den Kano", at times reflective and subdued such as on "Ipirotiko". Framed by the powerful vocals of lead singer Ria Ellinidou, which beguilingly float over the compositions, lending the album a distinctive note.
