KRANIDES is a project of Greek singer and Laouto player Marifenia Rizou, and Dutch/French guitar player, producer and experimental instrument - designer Michiel Hollanders. They combine Greek roots with other world-music influences. The bandname ‘Kranides’ refers to the village of Kranies up in the Pindos mountains behind Arta, where they started this project, and where parts of the recordings were done. It is a place that never ceases to inspire , through the majesty of the mountains, the crisp clean air, and the quiet away from hectic life in today’s society.

Klapa Reful Split

For more than a decade, I have been asked by my Croatian friends, especially by a friend whom I have to mention here – the writer and poet Djordje Matic – why don’t I do a project with one of the famous Dalmatian close harmony singing groups - the so-called klapa, particularly now that those small acapella units and their singing style have been added in 2012 to UNESCO’s Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.


so, finally we are proud to present you our new group & project on Snail Records.

Music Name


After many fan requests to make a live album, Mostar Sevdah Reunion is finally about to release one. Titled Kings of sevdah, the name that suits these pioneers of Balkan blues, should satisfy everybody,  who wanted to catch their unreal live energy. The album will consist of eleven songs that have been performed all over Europe in last seven years. Frenetic energy, rich sound, virtuoso playing skills and finest touch of sevdah standards make this album a thrilling ride and a real gem on the leading world music scene.
