Kamancello – Kamancello

Beautiful music created with the heart, in a stream of pure improvisation, captured live without editing. Just as it came pouring from the passion and expertise of Shahriyar Jamshidi and Raphael Weinroth-Browne bringing together two different musical heritages, two different cultures that when both agree and hold each other’s hands, make clear we’re no different at all. This album is a celebration of music, of life and creation. Whether you’re into chamber instrumental music or not, I can only recommend you to buy this album now. It is one of the best things you could do today. 5/5 ★

Luckily they have another album and an EP out to tide you over.

Vuur – In This Moment We Are Free – Cities

“In This Moment We Are Free – Cities” is a solid debut album, but after all the hassle and built-up anticipation since last year the outcome is slightly disappointing. If Vuur continue to develop on the strong moments though, there is much to expect from the next release – because they have all the musical skills at hand, and of course they have Anneke’s stellar voice and spirit.
