Gimel Suite #1 is wildly romantic, energetic yet sad; always tuneful music.
These days the Zestniks personnel are always updating themselves - keeping the music fresh and vibrant. This Golden Dawn performance will feature the Halapua sisters in a unique high profile tuneful & sisterly line-up. The vocalist Carolina Moon's inclusion takes us into a different orbit.
