Antikrisis

Antikrisis is Mec Yek’s first full album. As you’d expect from the band’s origins, it contains musical surprises: from pure a capella, over minimalist instrumentation, to elaborate horn sections. The guest musicians add ethnic sounds on cymbalom (Kostel Ursuletz) and fujara (played here by English folk instrumental legend Andrew Cronshaw, no stranger to fusing the traditional with the experimental) and if you listen closely, you can even hear a ukelele playing in the mix. It’s a new and moving sound, full of balkan beats and gypsy passion… So beautiful it hurts!
