En El Amor is a fascinating new project that brings together two well-known jazz musicians, Michel Godard (serpent) and Jarrod Cagwin (percussion) with the Bosnian singer Natasa Mirkovic, a truly versatile vocalist who became known internationally with her theme song for Angelina Jolie’s “In the land of blood and honey,” as well as for her recording of Schubert’s “Winterreise.” On this album, the singer performs songs from her childhood in Bosnia: Ancient Sephardic traditionals, that are still being sung by the people of the Balkan area today. She clearly draws inspiration from her ancestral roots, while at the same time the three musicians arrange these old songs in a new and experimental context, creating a magical soundscape that transcends time, culture and tradition. Recorded in the breathtaking acoustics of the former synagogue of St. Polten in Austria, this album becomes a total work of art fusing ancient and new, religious and secular, traditional and modern artistic expression.
