Boomkat Product Review:
Greek singer, pianist and composer Maroulita De Kol looks to traditional Hellenic ceremonial culture on her debut album, singing over ornate piano flourishes and hazy electronics.
Now based in Berlin, de Kol grew up in Athens and was fascinated by her homeland's pre-Christian rituals. On 'Anásana', she uses these practices to inform a suite of contemporary experiments, building on her classical training and emphasizing the rich mythology of ancient Macedonia. Her piano playing is rooted in Greek folk music and her vocals play on the region's history of ritual magic, curling around her instrumentation gracefully and blissfully. It's not dark by any means, but de Kol doesn't trip into the saccharine either, conjuring sun-bleached Greek landscapes and echoing into the past.
