Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Tantz! is the fifth album from Sirba Octet. While respecting the spirit and nobility of Gypsy Klezmer, these eight musicians of the Orchestre de Paris present unique arrangements and bold interpretations. Tapping into the traditional repertoire they bring to the public the Doina, Hora, Sirba and other dances of klezmer gypsy music from Eastern Europe. Tantz! is a gateway between Romania, Moldova, Russia and Poland - a poetic journey that crosses borders and imagination.
