Daniel Barry in Northern Romania

Composer Daniel Barry recently returned from the Maramures region of Northern Romania. He spent several days at the home studio of master Romanian singer and instrumentalist Ioan Pop.

It encompasses joy, pathos, banality, great beauty, serenity and frenzy, nearly all of the elements I'm looking for to continue my work."
