AllMusic Review by

If you were captivated by The Mystery of Bulgarian Voices, you will be spellbound by this amazing collection of music. While three CDs may sound like overkill, the variety and beauty of this music makes this collection a treasure without a bit of excess. It's not just the variety, but the tasteful programming of the tracks that makes this set so rewarding. The first disc opens with Belarusian chant and a few tracks later offers the jazzy guitar of Ukrainian Enver Ismailov without a moment of culture shock. The detailed booklet gives you everything you need to know about the artists, and the cultural backgound of a varied and wondrous chunk of the globe.
