Tara Fuki - Kapka

I remain very impressed by Tara Fuki, the Polish/Czech duo of Andrea Konstankiewicz and Dorota Barova. Because really, there isn't enough experimental gypsy folk classical crossover music out there. Kapka is quite audacious, jumping from water drops to wails, from breathy vocalisation to resonant arco cello. It's knotty stuff, wound tightly around itself and hopping from strand to strand. It's the title track of their 2003 album which was, believe it or not, originally written for children. I'm still young enough for this to leave a huge grin on my face. Great stuff.
