5 Οι yeden παρουσίαζουν του πρώτο τους δίσκο, με 12 οργανικές συνθέσεις των μελών του σχήματος Τους yeden απαρτίζουν μουσικοί από την Ελλάδα και την Ισπανία. Κοινό στοιχείο τους είναι η αγάπη για μουσικές παραδόσεις της Ελλάδας, των Βαλκανίων, της Μέσης Ανατολής και της κεντρικής Ασίας, κάποιες από τις οποίες έχουν μελετήσει σε βάθος, κοντά σε σημαντικούς μουσικούς που τις εκπροσωπούν. Στις συνθέσεις των yeden συνυφαίνονται στοιχεία από τις παραδόσεις αυτές με το προσωπικό μουσικό στίγμα των μελών, ενώ κυριαρχεί η διάθεση για πειραματισμό με τις παραδοσιακές φόρμες, τους ήχους, και τις ενορχηστρώσεις. Ο κάθε μουσικός οδηγείται προς νέες κατευθύνσεις ερμηνείας της παράδοσης, τις οποίες εξερευνούν όλοι μαζί μέσα από τη μουσική πράξη και τον αυτοσχεδιασμό.
