On the 9th of September our single ‘Aleksandrinke’ will be available for download as you pre-order our new album ‘ELDA’ from my new project ELDA Trio. The whole album is otherwise out on the 23rd of September on Two Rivers Records and we are celebrating with an album launch at Kings Place on the 22nd of September.
‘Aleksandrinke’ is a tribute to the Aleksandrian Women who emigrated in a big mass during the 19th century from Slovenia to Aleksandria in Egypt. This was due to economical circumstances, which forced a huge population of women to leave Slovenia to work as nannies in Egypt. The Slovenian women were known to be strong, kind and great as maids and nannies. There are many sad stories attached to this period of time as it meant that many women had to leave their own children and families to go and look after others in order to send money back home.
Sign up to my mailing list to receive my news letter next week with links and updates on the new album. Or follow me on FB and Twitter.
I am really looking forward to be sharing this new project with you all, featuring Janez Dovc on Accordion and Electronics and Adriano Adewale on Percussion!
