Shkurte Fejza, Shyhrete Behluli, Remzie Osmani, Motrat Mustafa “Potpuri 3 (Kalavesh po vjen Fatbardha…)”
from Bilbilat e Mushtishtit (Chill Out 2009) —This starts with a slow song in city style in 12/8, again divided 3+2+2+3+2, and goes on with a whole suite of songs spliced, studio style.
Giorgos Poulantzaklis “Tamsara”
from Eyneth (Vasipap/Thermaikos) —the Tamzara is a dance in 9/8 (divided 2+2+2+3) found from the Black Sea east into Iraq (where it was done, until recently, by the Assyrian Christian population. The Armenians "own" the style now, but this, and the next selection, is the Pontic Greek ver
Sonata “Belo Lice Ljubam Jas”
from Following the trails of the song (Mister 2006) —the oldest recording I have of this is on a 45rpm disc from about 50 years ago, and is of some village women with minimal accompaniment; Studio-pop versions of old songs like this have become more common in recent years.
Kabile (Dzhenko Andreev) “Solo Gaida”
from Traditional Music From Thrace ((self) www.wearesharkdad.bandcamp.com 2011) —after a free-style opening, Andreev swings into a fast Trite Puti. The work on the tupan (drum) is exceptionally fine; The tupan player Angel Krustev unfortunately passed away this year.
