AllMusic Review by

This live recording features three of Croatia's most well-known artists, folksingers Lidija Bajuk and Dunja Knebl and the ambient worldbeat group Legen. However, all three artists perform traditional Croatian songs in a folk style. These performances are spine-chilling even to non-Croatian speaking listeners. Heartfelt themes like loneliness, fear, sadness, and longing are addressed in spellbinding intimacy, with simple melodic appeal that is not lost among listeners regardless of their native tongues.
