LISTEN: (Belated) Sunday mix #6, Lvivski tsymbaly busker

...lost my connection yesterday:
sometimes he plays here

I have a favorite busker in Lviv, an old Cossack-looking tsymbaly player. Most street performers stake out a corner with mafioso intensity. But this guy wanders, never in the same place twice. I caught him in a passage through the medieval defense wall the other day. I spent a few hry for a disc.

I imagine him recording this in a one room apartment, while his family members all hold their breath. Intimate and rewarding...

Enjoy the spells of Lviv's wandering tsymbaly player:

LISTEN: Sunday mix #1, Gary Numan
LISTEN: Sunday mix #3, Indie optimism
