Music from Maramureș country
Situated in far northern Romania, the village where Yoan Pop was born was one of Béla Bartok’s fields of study… quite a good sign. Multi-instrumentalist Ioan Pop founded Groupe Iza by immersing himself in the life of such villages, at the heart of tradition. With the excellent musicians he selects, he tries to promote the richness of Maramures traditions outside Romania while maintaining a musical activity intimately linked with everyday life (marriages, births, funerals, parties…) across the country. Both contemporary and bearer of a memory, this astonishingly virtuous music features an unceasingly renewed inventiveness.
