Sjaj Sto Izdaje - "Shine that betrays" (IZDA-UU)
Darko Rundek & Gargo Orkestar is my first encounter with Croatian music. Listening to Darko Rundek's enunciation of Croatian lyrics bathes the listener in a new gene-pool of vocables and musically evokes feelings and emotions and bridge the listener to a people, far beyond the abstraction of the evening news. Listening to Darko Rundek & Gargo Orkestar is a wake-up experience.

Lisbeth Scott is the co-lyricist and vocalist on the sound track for "The Passion of the Christ." She can also be heard on the soundtracks of the Shrek movies.

The song titled "Grace," on her new cd "Passionate Voice," is my favorite. The throaty sounds of the Armenian duduk seem to penetrate to another level of being and suspend Lisbeth's vocals in an ethereal space.
