Márta Sebestyén – The Best Of Márta Sebestyén

25 05 2010

Listened: Tuesday May 25

Márta Sebestyén is most famous for the beautiful Hungarian songs in The English Patient, though she’s had a long career besides that. On this collection of her songs, she sings in Hungarian, Slovak, English, and Hindi amongst others. Whatever the language, her voice is lovely, haunting, and not like anything I’ve ever heard before.

This CD actually belonged to my college roommate, but I inherited it when she moved to Nepal (she’s since returned but I still have the CD). The songs always makes me think of her.
