A love song common to refugees from Kavakli in Northern Thrace (Bulgaria). It is one of the many Thracian songs that refers to the trials one has to endure in the name of love. In this case, the song speaks of a young man who lay awake for 5 days and nights, dancing and singing under the house of his loved one, just to find out what her name was.
If "Dhulka Hooyo" doesn't move your ass, you lack an ass, all its fuzzy keys-triumphant vocal harmonies an all. I often enjoy world music distantly, but this one has the feels--recommend, recommend. VAST DEFERENS
This has become one of the most important albums of my life. It’s essence is indescribable. Every sound from the start of the record through the end is placed delicately and with care. The album cover is by Julie Mehretu. It’s absolutely an incredible release for which I shall be eternally grateful. Aniket
