Folkwords Rosa Rebecka

“The elements of achingly pure vocals, simple pared-back instrumentation and eloquently memorable melodies leave you wanting far more than the six tracks on offer. There’s a gentleness to her voice that belies the depths and searching of her lyrics, and gives her songs a softly engaging edge. There’s also a connection, an intimacy if you prefer, that pulls the listener into the song and moves the performer close to you.”

Rosa FATEA

“The disc is a gentle wave of exploration and has the underlying themes of love and selflessness. Folkstock is a good home for Rosa Rebeckah, her penchance and confidence for including traditional works alongside her own compositions builds up a multi-cultural disc with unique expressions much like the identity behind them, and this fits well with Folkstock’s roster of international folk identities. It unashamedly brings in personal traditional influences and relies predominantly on the strength of her performance rather than overly inventive methods of interpretation to fit folk into a box that several audiences come to expect. Her voice is the centre-piece and is a delight to the ears (she is indisputably glowing here), I feel that folk listeners will decide if they resonate with the raw and selfless energy she provides in “det star err trad” and “sh’ma” alongside the other songs or whether they would prefer the more recognisable combination of traditional and modern lyrical arrangements that could be made with these songs. Either way it is a forthright addition to the collection.”
