Mateja Gorjup - Ijekaru

On her debut album IJEKARU, Mateja Gorjup (a former member of interesting musical ensembles such as Horda grdih or Lunin med) – a singer, interpreter of Slavic song lore, vocal improvisator and researcher – intertwines her own independent explorations, improvisations and compositions with the world of folk songs and traditions, which have always been present in her singing.
Most of the recordings were made at Mateja's place, many of them were caught in the moment of inspiration and improvisation, or were shaped by singing songs, polishing the material, exploring melodies and vocal fragments.
When listening to Ijekaru, it seems that we have heard it all a long time ago. And this is precisely the quality of a "human" factor in the voice, with which Mateja speaks directly to us so lively and simply authentic.
