The truly virtuousic violinist Alexis Zoumbas immigrated from the mountains of northern Greece to NYC in the 1910s, where he recorded with the great Marika Papagika before cutting his own instrumental sessions with a small string ensemble. Zoumbas had the rare gift of expressing emotion so clearly and urgently through his instrument, and his violin feels like an extension of his heart, soul, and the deep musical history of his faraway home in Epirus. Previously only heard on scratchy 78s and the 'Lament For Epirus' compilation (Angry Mom, 2014), the original recordings were recently uncovered in pristine condition and have been restored in astonishingly clear and present sound quality, and includes completely unreleased takes and stunning solo improvisations. Please note this is a completely different release than the 'Lament From Epirus' release. The LP includes a booklet with extensive biographical notes, with poly-bags and promotional sticker, and is co-released by Orpheum Phonograph and Olvido Records.
