Kontrabando - "Cargo" {Greece} [2003] (Folk)

The ensemble says:
If we wanted to describe "CARGO" in a few words, we would say that it is the new Greek sound. It all began by a group of new musicians from Kavala (a beautiful city of North Greece) who love and also teache traditional music. From this group emerged four composers and three singers. The aroma of tradition is intense, both in the orchestration and in the musical paths in which many of the tracks move. But further to this, the sound is of today, direct, and most importantly, alive. In a succession of their songs and music, KONTRABANDO make us accomplices to their illegal transaction from our first hearing. The "CARGO" is simply the "cargo" of good music, which might not be "illegal", but it is certainly difficult to find. read more here
