Bridges from the East, the new CD from Polish born Elektra Kurtis comes straight out of the composer's Greek heritage. Always an outsider, Kurtis' music is deeply personal with interweaving elements referencing different music styles and origins. Committed to making the music her own, Bridges from the East reflects the sound of Eastern Europe and North Africa, cultures Kurtis relates to the most, and although separated geographically all of this music is connected by human spirit, emotion, ethics, and expression.
