Here is one more of the Deben Bhattacharya field recordings. This time he is going further south to Macedonia. A helping hand extended from a good friend in music allows us to hear these recordings. It was through him we were supplied with the rip and photos of cover and labels. Himself an excellent stringman who plays several instruments, pointed out the merits of the bouzouki player Dino Trig who is represented with three tracks on this record, A1, A4 and A5, all samples of rather inticate pickings, hear for yourself. Hope you enjoy! As always there is many things to read at folkcatalogues blog, also this one is mentioned in a post on a Greek Argo record that I will post here a little later. Read on here...

It is my pleasure! And a "lure" to see that you come around to Luobaniya once in a while ;-)
