GYPSY MUSIC OF ROMANIA:
Taraf de Haidouks
Description:
A riveting program of Roma (Gypsy) music with the extraordinary Romanian Gypsy band Taraf de Haidouks, which comprises three generations of musicians. This colorful ensemble from the village of Clejani near Bucharest is known for it eccentricity, remarkable fiddling, and songs in the old Romany style. Its extensive repertoire includes wedding songs, dance melodies, epic songs and ballads which reveal the soul and passion of the Gypsy people.
