Marta Sebestyen- Hegyen-Volgyon
The beautiful song has ended.
I'm eagerly anticipating the new Juana Molina album set for release May 23. I've been in thrall of the Argentinian's enchanting Tres Cosas since I stumbled upon it last year. It's absurdly beautiful. My first encounter with this fusion of gorgeous voice and gentle electronica was Marta Sebestyen's Apocrypha from 1992. Sebestyen is best known as the primary vocalist for the Hungarian folk group Muzsikas. This sublime, magical music is something far different, although it will sound eerily familiar to Molina's fans.
