Eelco Schilder (folkworld.eu) Dance of Fire is the fourth album by the Poland based quartet Sarakina. On their previous album they played music inspired by Chopin, a wonderful album. On this new album you will find a Chopin track, but mainly original material. Nine tracks of fabulous Balkan influenced music, melodic, jazzy and occasionally with a good rock feeling. Again I’m impressed by the fine craftsmanship of the musicians. They paint beautiful landscapes with their instruments and have the gift of putting emotion in their play. This new album is a welcome addition to their discography and only proofs that this band belongs at the top of European roots music.
