Aco Bocina - ACO BOCINA & FANFARE CIOCARLIA (2003)

Croatia born, Italy-based singer, guitarist and mandolinist is joined on about half this CD by the infamous Ciocarlia mob, for an unusual and sometimes strange fusion of Gypsy guitar music a la 'The Gipsy Kings' and the latters' trademark Balkan brass madness. Even the non-brass tracks have a whacky tone to them... Hammond organ sounds, odd samplings and a sheer, sometimes nutty attitude keep it all off-kilter. It's a mixed bag, to be sure, but what's hot more than balances what's not.
