Cdii Ten Bal
Gonnagles is a folk collective from Enschede (NL), composed of a small dozen musicians. The band was started in 2005, and plays mainly their own balfolk compositions. Although the Gonnagles successfully played several bals in their own country, a very major part of their audience lives just over the border in Germany, where the Gonnagles have good contacts with the fast growing balfolk scene. Their first CD with a mixed repertoire of Euopean folk music was released on February 1st, 2008. Now, the band has released a new CD containing only own compositions. They sound like a collision between Djal and a gypsy orchestra. 'The Gonnagles are a foolish, but above all very talented collective. Their succeed in mixing wild party music with modest moments of beautiful music. The Gonnagles are with many, but it really doesn't degrade the energy which splashes from the stage' -- Toon van Mierlo (Naragonia) You can listen to l'Orage and Rondodrome for free and then decide if you like it! As an extra bonus, the CD box is made entirely out of wood and smells really great.
