    Just saw this. This cut of the film is not the released version. It was an alternate put together by the director after Dallas had him legally barred from using the film because of legal issues and it paints him in a less than flattering light which is a shame.

    I lived in a caravan with Dallas for 6 months and I got close to the family. His step father is one of Lousson's sons so I was literally in ground zero and learned a lot about Django and Joseph and the rest of the family that most people don't know. When Lousson's sister Kali died I was in their camp during the two day wake and met Choti and Gagoug and other members of the family. This is one of my most cherished experiences and one I continue to learn from.

    I'm really proud of the album we recorded with Ghali Hadefi on bass and Aurore Voilque on violin. It'll be released on Hot Club Records at some point in the not-too-distant future. Michael Dregni has signed on to write the liner notes. The album is aggressive and very raw and everyone who has heard it has flipped out wanting more. I'll keep everyone posted on its status.

    Anyway, I had to respond.



    PS: for you Cyrille-Aime fans; it was Dallas younger brother Loumpie who first pushed her to pursue singing. :)

    I watched quite a bit of it for not knowing any French, is there subtitles up? I've never heard of Dallas, very nicely shot video though, Would like to watch it with subtitles eventually

    I thought I'd seen one with subtitles, but I can't remember where. I'll look through my archives to see if I've got one.
