Following up on the enormous success of her Trilectic release from 2000, Jewlia Eisenberg has again fashioned a remarkable program of a cappella vocal and instrumental music on socio-political themes—themes that Jews think about, maybe even obsess about, from genocide and the nature of evil to freedom under extreme restraints and the response of art to all of these conditions. Influences as varied as eastern European folk, contemporary classical, hard rock, jazz, gypsy and Jewish music mesh seamlessly in Jewlia's boldly original compositional voice. Featuring her all-star band, Charming Hostess, Sarajevo Blues is an exciting new release by one of the most prolific and creative women working in new music today.

Reviews
It's kind of Le Mystere Des Voix Bulgares meets Zap Mama meets Tom Tom Club. For examples of the Zap Mama influence, one need go no further than "War" and "Grbavica" which both ooze with oral percussion effects. This continues on "Death Is A Job" which is paradoxically a funky upbeat acapella jam session.. “ Eric Iverson
