Thanks! Share it with your friends!


This album is a Motion Picture Soundtrack of Oskar Und Leni, performed by Penguin Cafe Orquestra and composed by Simon Jeffes.

“Penguin Cafe Orchestra was an avant-pop band led by Simon Jeffes. Co-founded with cellist Helen Liebmann, the band toured extensively during the 1980s and 1990s. The orchestra’s sound is not easily categorized, but has elements of exuberant folk music and a minimalist aesthetic occasionally reminiscent of composers such as Philip Glass” (Wikipedia).

“Simon Jeffes’ music always lent itself to the visual medium of film, and his compositions have been featured in many movies. While many of the tunes here have been featured on earlier albums, they are given new performances, rendered with more relaxed grace and aural breadth than heard before. It’s a lovely, playful, sometimes melancholy record” – Tim Sheridan/AllMusic.
