Usta "master" Laver Bariu might be the best known clarinet player from Albania. The CDs "Songs from the City of Roses" and "The dirge of Përmet" found their way into the world.
The book is like a biography of Laver Bariu, born in 1929 in Përmet, about his "sazeve" or ensembles, his awards, CD recordings, song lyrics and other things of interest, but in all a hommage to Usta Laver Bariu.
One of the remarkable things in the career of Laver Bariu is the movie "Gjeneral Gramofoni". In the movie Bujar Lako is imitating Laver Bariu on the clarinet, but the music is really played by Laver.
The enclosed CD has 13 tracks in which 8 of them Laver is leading.
Just for the CD this book is a gem to have for those who enjoy the kabas by Laver Bariu.
