Many times I asked myself: Is there any chance to help music come true? Is it even appropriate to describe music with words. Doesn't it already destroy the poetry if I read about music? The most inspiring music uses the human voice just as an instument and it is comprehensible to everyone in the audience - especially if they are not even speaking the respective language. When they feel the speech deep in the guts, in the mind, somewhere, where there is nothing more to say. I think that the album Black Eyes works exactly like that. Because of its depth. Whenever you dive into these black eyes you will get lost. That does not really make sense, but it feels really awesome. What am I writing about? Sorry, I have no clue. Well... looks like that's the way it works.

About "Absinto Orkestra"

Dashing full speed from stage to stage in Germany, the Absinto Orkestra is one of the Balkan-Beat Express' haul engines. And this is going on for than 15 years. Inspired by the mesmerizing rhythms of eastern european wedding music, five musicians tell their very own story: A story about the violine players love for classical music, the guitar players passion for Django Reinhardt, the saxophone players devotion for Jazz and the russian origin of the bass player as well as the bessarabian roots of the mandolin player.

Absito live on the stage is not only an irresistible invitation to sing and dance and clap along. It is also like celebrating anthems of life comprising everything that makes up our short existance: love, evanescence, desire, melancholy and frenzy.
