From expressively playable folklore instruments and the infamous balkan brass sound to an ethnic vocal quartet and solo percussion. It´s all right at your fingertips.
Every instrument inside this collection was recorded with the same attention to detail than our other libraries, featuring multiple mic positions, different short and long articulations, expressive phrases, true polyphonic legato and various ensemble sizes.
