Reviews

“The self-titled release is an excellent cross-section of musical creativity culturally steeped and brewed in the folk and gypsy traditions of Europe. [...] If you are looking for a fusion-based Balkan/Gypsy group, then look no further. The boys of Txutxukan are here to stay! ”
Matthew Forss - Inside World Music

The music has a fresh kind of pureness and is without any false pretentions. A pleasure to listen to, with moments of virtuoso play, but mainly honest acoustic music.”
Eelco Schilder - Folk World

“Un cocktail sonore (d)'étonnant. Les arrangements novateurs et inédits à travers le mariage époustouflant entre les musiques des Balkans et d'Irlande, font de cet album un véritable coup de coeur musical. Une révélation-découverte inédite et surprenante.”
L'Autre Distribution

“Les quatre membres de Txutxukan sont des globe trotter aguerris [...] Adeptes de la musique gypsy, des Balkans et du monde entier, ils ont aiguisé leur cocktail sonore sur les routes et débarquent pour vous faire découvrir sur scène leur tout premier album "Balkan Jig"!”
