Departe De Casa


Departe De Casa
Todd Garfinkle discovered Formatia Valea Mare playing in the Paris subway, and immediately made plans to record what would become "Departe De Casa." The band members all come from the same village in Moldava, which is called, of course, Valea Mare. While in Romania, they played weddings, births and funerals. The Formatia Valea Mare project was recorded in one of Orleans, France's oldest and most beautiful Gothic Cathedrals, built in the 15th century. To me the large band's music lives somewhere between gypsy and oddly enough, klezmer; most of the tunes are played at breakneck speed. It's truly awesome music!
