¿Dólos Mis Amores?
This project is a journey through different european traditions of folk poetry, with an emphasis on the balladistic tradition and connecting Europe, East to West. This project is a collaboration of the two artists and scholars of these traditions, each one specializing in the folklore of their respective countries of origin, while always looking for points of connection as expressed in the human experience. Maria Krupoves incarnates Eastern Europe, singing songs in Polish, Lithuanian, Russian, Bosnian and Belorussian that she herself has compiled in her investigations. Tomás Lozano embodies Western Europe, singing in Castilian, Catalan and French, and at times composing music for the original texts and revivifying them in the process. All songs have been artistically arranged by these two artists whose combined backgrounds and styles yields a modern and innovative touch to these traditional songs.
