Voices

"The songs that Anka Gnoth and George Donchev play together are deeply moving, traveling beyond any musical category. Their sound is pure and intimate, carefully and lovingly crafted. Their live performance exhibits an exquisite sensitivity in the way they listen to each other with total attention and respect and joy for each detail of the magical world of sound they are creating.

This quiet world of sound brings the listener into the heart of their creation, the soul of the moment, as the music, its energy, vibration, and sense of wonder in its beauty remind one of the deeper purpose of music and its importance in our lives." by B. Seager / Boston M.A.
