Da Solo Sulla Strada world music

Enlarge this picture! ...he paints the shines of Venice with the ancient violin of angels, the gadulka.

Szabolcs Szőke is a part of the music life of Venice from 30 years ago.
His renasaince figure appers in Gudecca, in the places of Canal Grande or in the San Angelo.
One night he facninates 3000 people in a festival of the town and in the other day he captures a couple of passersby in small retired corner of squares.
The way as others paints with brush is the same as he paints the shines of Venice with the ancient violin of angels, the gadulka.
Through his music and stories we can be a part of his private relations with Venice.

Agenda world music

Enlarge this picture! „The gadulka is a solitudeinstrument. Our record tells mostly about this solitudeinstrument. We are inseparable of each other. My instrument originates from a Bulgarian town, called Nesebar. This is a headland. Partly Europe, partly Asia. The man, I have bought it from, thirthy years ago, is Hriszto Ivanov, Bulgarian gadulka player. I dedicate this record for him and for my wife, Margit, with whom I was there on honeymoon. And for my daughter, Sára, whose marriage will be soon. But, of course, for everyone, who is listening this music – really a musical diary (Agenda) – with open heart and ears. It raises a monument to the memory of a Bulgarian gadulka musician, of our young days, of my wandering in the world, Budapest – Nesebar – Paris – Caracas – Florence – Venice – Bovegno di Magno – imaginary eastern towns, the sounds of solitude and being together. These are the sound of the beggar and of the rich, in the litterally and the figurally sense of the word as well.” – Szabolcs Szőke
