Zakouska « La Criée /The Clamourous Fish-Market »
Zakouska is a french quartet that plays music from the Mediterranean.
Their third album calls forth images of the sea, its waves and undercurrents, of sadness and
loneliness on the water, and the joy and bustle of the market in port.
The four musicians offer a fresh look at old traditions, artfully combining French and Greek
songs, Balkan devilry and flights of Turkish fancy.
Each piece stirs up the atmosphere of the fish-markets of Marseille, Athens and Istanbul that
take centre stage in this creative and generous musical journey.
