Genre: Folk

Originally released in 1983 in former Yugoslavia, this album is a truly undiscovered gem of ethereal folk music. Pesmi combines the old traditional melodies of Eastern Europe and the Balkan States area with the lush and enchanting instrumentation of late '60s and early '70s folk with elements of progressive folk and singer/songwriter music from England and the USA. This results in a highly-mystifying and still easily folksy piece of exclusively acoustically instrumented music with haunting female vocals that seduce you with lyrics in their native tongue. Pesmi reminds of well-known artists like Pentangle, Steeleye Span, Gryphon, Fairport Convention, and even Simon & Garfunkel, just with this very unique Eastern flavor and bigger emotional gestures in the melodies. An utterly picturesque musical experience.
