Without singer Ludo Vandeau and back into its original line is Ambrosia embarked on a new road that has captured her fifth album Botsjeribo. Apart from a few French songs this CD contains many English-language work of Tom Theuns who takes the vocals. Based on American singer-songwriter music was called in the run-up to release today. But the CD Botsjeribo more Anglo-Saxon than American.
What Ambrozijn - and this CD - so special is the next artistic delights, regularly returning to the essentials. Delicious with threesomes - like on stage - playing swinging dances, without electronic gadgets and complicated bragging. Challenging each other, searching for the right balance between fiddle, accordion and guitar. So it exudes fun on Scottish for a happy new year, the traditional Moving Cloud, Doedelyoudo?, and the Gabor Mazurka.
Ambrozijn which shows the artistic and thoughtful material easily and without any embarrassment becomes pleasantly simple back to the roots, their maturity at times. The group is unique in it. Especially in the second half of the CD increases Ambrozijn it to unprecedented levels, culminating so the song Party at Mrs. Garriocks that evolves into a rousing Sirtaki! From a dreamy atmosphere.
