The Bucharest-born singer Diana Rasina offers in an authentically expressive way a remarkable overview of the musical folklore of Romania. In her homeland, the young singer initially dedicates herself to the opera singing, but soon her musical career leads her to Vienna, where she studies jazz singing. Fascinated by the diversity and the musical bridging that she finds in the local music scene, her path leads her to where it all began, to the traditional music of her native Romania.
The young singer finds in the archaic and inartificial chant of her ancestors the authentic freedom of expression, the direct and pure articulation of the soul. Since then, she wanders through all regions of her homeland and revives lively dance and wedding tunes, sighing laments and old pastoral ballads, Romani songs and oriental melodies, as well as “classics” of Romanian folklore.
Diana Rasina found the congenial musical partners for her unique musical project in three outstanding and renowned musicians: Dimitar Karamitev from Bulgaria on kaval (shepherd's flute), Laszlo Racz from Hungary on cimbalom and Jovan Torbica from Serbia on double bass.
