Čači Vorba’s new album ŠATRIKA proves their quality as highly distinguished musicians in Gypsy and Balkan music. The group serves a virtuoso fusion of Ethnic music, Roma swing, Romanian blues, Balkan pop and Mediterranean timbre, performed on traditional instruments and doing without electronic support.

Maria Natanson’s warm, focused voice, her natural ease in singing in many languages, and the transparent, varied musical arrangements are what make this music so unique.

Natanson shows again her capability of bringing emotions into the music, wonderfully backed by her fellow musicians. You will hear them playing measured and furious, traditional and modern at the same time but always perfectly in balance. Another greatly produced and performed album, another evidence of a remarkable musical advance.
