Semyon and Daniel Kobialka, Black is the Color, from the album “American Classics-Parlor Music Revisited.”

•••1st round Grammy nomination for “Folk Album of the Year!”•••

Recorded by Mason Macias and Chris Cline.  Mixed and mastered by Chris Cline.

“Semyon’s arrangements for the duo utilize overdubbing in the colorful and lush harmony lines in an all-acoustic production. The addition of Mason Macias at drums and percussion adds an additional color to the album. Semyon and Daniel take turns carrying the melody while the other plays harmony. The powerful result is a heartfelt and very musical tribute to the legacy of the United States, its history and its future potential.” —Scott Yanow
