Eva Salina & Peter Stan – Sudbina (Vogiton Records, 2018)
Sudbina recreates the songs of Vida Pavlovic, a Serbian Roma (Gypsy) singer who was very popular in the former Yugoslavia and came to be known as the “Queen of Roma Music.”
The two artists involved in this recording are American vocalist Eva Salina, who specializes in Eastern European music, and Serbian Roma accordionist Peter Stan (Slavic Soul Party).
Sudbina is a set of deeply-moving love songs showcasing the talent of Eva Salina as passionate performer of Roma music and Peter Stan’s masterful accordion work profoundly rooted in Balkan Gypsy music.
