Product Notes

'Quite simply, Niki Jacobs has one of the nicest voices for singing Yiddish I've heard in a long time...one of the best of the new Yiddish folksong ensembles.' -- (klezmershack.com) Holland-based NIKITOV is an acoustic ensemble that plays Yiddish songs and Klezmer accented by the rhythms and sounds of Gypsy Jazz and Eastern European folk music. The band plays with a unique approach harnessing the drive and energy of these traditions while capturing the emotion and depth of the Yiddish text. Featuring beautiful vocal interpretations by Niki Jacobs backed by a powerhouse acoustic group. Nikitov's debut CD on Chamsa Records marks a distinctive artistic statement in their style. Produced without overdubs and with a live sound in mind, the band throws out studio trickery in favor of simplicity, allowing the songs and arrangements to speak for themselves. A sublime and folky vocal style merges with energetic accompaniment and improvisations that find their way deep into the songs. The result is a subtlety not often heard in today's Klezmer and Jewish music market! 'Amulet is wonderful. Beautiful music, great singing.' -- Terry O'Laughlin (dj on WORT-FM in Madison, WI) 'I didn't want the CD to be over and as soon as it was, I started it again. Wonderful, everything about it, choice of pieces, musicianship, voice.' -- Carol Newman (KMUN Radio in Astoria, OR) 'A beautiful CD by a group of highly skilled musicians.' -- (folkworld.de) Niki Jacobs - voice Jelle van Tongeren - violin Adam Good - acoustic guitar Jason Sypher - acoustic bass.
