about

1988 Grammy Nominee
The First Album of Original Music
Created by Americans and Russians Together

This milestone collaboration, recorded in Moscow and New York in 1987, was the first album of original music created by Americans and Russians together. The Consort's western harmonies and Afro-Brazilian rhythms floating over the ancient circle songs and village chants revitalized by the dynamic Russian singers make this into an energetic, reverberating layering of sound.

"Paul's fusion of this 1,000-year old Russian ethnic choral tradition with the personal style of his group is a forceful statement of his belief in the oneness of our earth song." (DAVE BRUBECK)

"For centuries, trained composers have tried rearranging fok music. In this ground-breaking album, Paul Winter does something that may set a new path - of juxtaposing and superimposing different idioms. It may raise eyebrows. I think it's great." (PETE SEEGER)
