is Greek and means "I strike/hit".
The Material on this CD are some of the Songs that I through the years (1994 - )
used and uses in my Percussion Ensembles @ Karlshamn's
The Songs are appreciated by my Students, Myself as well as of our Audience.
I hope this Recording will inspire and show the Listener that the
Percussion not necessarily has to be "boom & bang" although that also can
have its charm.
There are however mostly "hit songs"" on this CD
(suitable since "hit" also can mean "strike"!).
It's my hope that the Music and the Instruments in this way will find new
Marimba is the Instrument that I've chosen although there should have been
Bells etc in some Songs. This is because I personally prefer this
instrument because of its wide
range and its mighty tone. To make a difference in the different Voices
character I shift Mallets
since their difference in hardness makes one Instrument sounding like many

According to the Swedish Encyclopedia KROUMATA (by
Sture Olsson) does the Greek "CHROTXO" mean "I hit".
It's a word diversion that has lead to the German "Krustische Instrumente" -
these instruments are all which sounding
parts are brought to vibration by hitting, snapping, clicking, scratching,
stroking... in other words: Percussion Instruments!
