Ensemble and directs the Martenitsa Choir, Sezoni has a rich beauty. The instrumental tracks serve as a reminder that the distance between Balkan melodies and klezmer is very short, while the harmonies and singing are as strong as those of any Bulgarian Choir-in fact, Silvia Entcheva, from Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares, sings on this record. The CD seems to play more as a suite than a series of unrelated tracks, and there's little doubt that the singers have learned how to capture those unearthly harmonies, letting them shimmer through the spare musical settings. The chorus swells powerfully over plucked strings and woodwinds, trading off with Mara for the lead, sprinkled with instrumental interludes.

Mara! is an Australian world music quintet. They have won 2 ARIA Awards for Best World Music Album in 1996 (Ruino Vino) and 2001 (Live in Europe) and they were also nominated in 2006 (Sorella) and along with the Martenitsa Choir in 1997 (Sezoni). Paul Cutlan - clarinets, saxophones. Lloyd Swanton - bass. Sandy Evans - saxophones. Llew Kiek - guitar, bouzouki, baglama. Mara Kiek - vocals, percussion. Jim Denley - flute, alto sax. Michael Haughton - tenor and soprano saxes.

Bulgarian poet Stefan Kozuharov wrote the lyrics in the traditional folk style, centering them around a seasonal motif. The piece is given an additional visual dimension by painter Richard Birmingham, who created several expressive works for the CD insert.
