hi,

i love gypsy music, from django, to hungarian, to flamenco, to the source...
anyway, if you can suggest some groups, or singers, or bands of gypsy music, its appreciated.
looking more for traditional rather than fusion.

cheers

I'd love to hear what you come up with. I only know of Gypsy Punk... Gogol Bordello. But there is something comparable to gypsy music in Manu Chao. He roams the globe playing for his supper and perhaps a bus ticket. Love his sound.

You may have heard of these before , but
I suggest checking out
www_putumayo_com -- they have excellent collections of world music.

Also, you could go to www_cdbaby_com and enter "gypsy" in the search bar. Cdbaby carries tons of independent artists of every kind and genre (and they happen to be located here in Portland, I might add :) )

Happy listening, playing, dancing, what have you...

peace & music...

One of the best gypsy musicians in all the world is Emir Kusturica, a filmmaker who also has a band, the No Smoking Orchestra.
Another serbian musician is Goran Bregovic, it's Ok too.

Goran Bregovic is one of the best gypsy musician in my opinion, along with Kusturica, obsviously ;)
If you want to try something by Bregovic you should listen to his albums "Ederlezi", "Eto! Bas Hocu!" and also "Tales and Songs from Weddings and Funerals".. they're great... as to Kusturica he made the great part of the soundtracks of his movies... but I think that one of his best albums is "Unza Unza Time"...Uh, there's also Taraf De Haidouks! he plays a very traditional gypsy music...and The Gypsy Kings were once quite famous, but I don't know exactly what kind of music they used to play since I've never listened to any of their songs...
That's all I know about gypsy musicians :)! I hope it's been useful enough!

thanks for the new suggestions...been downloading lots

just to give back...

wanted to suggest the wonderful movie

Latcho Drom

_www.youtube_com/results?search_query=latcho+drom&search=Search

i downloaded the movie from emule, its about 2 hours and its a musical journey from east india where the seminal gypsies sprouted all the way to france...you dont need subtitles because its mostly music, one land, one music, one people transitioning beautifully into each other, creating a harmonical symbiosm as you go from land to the next. keep note of the customes.

definitely something to see in a big screen and good speakers...make sure you have a good wine to see it with.

ciao
nigel

If You loved 'Latcho Drom' you should watch other Gatlif's movies. I really WORSHIP them!This man's got great passion to music. I often wonder what's more important in his films : the picture or the soundtrack? don't know :)
The marvellous stories about gypsies are 'Vengo' ( about andalucia with lots of flamenco), 'Latcho Drom' and 'Transylvania'
so, buy another bottle of wine and watch :)

hugs,
Paulina

PS. ach, and one more thing I can recommend - Gypsy Kings.

i did just that...wow...im liking mr. gatlifs works. just saw swing and gadjo dilo, they're very nice.
makes me think that all gypsies, young old, man woman, play some sort of instrument or sing, or dance.
its great to know a whole people saturated with music and dance in their culture.

off to see vengo now.

thanks again

p.s. me gusta gypsy kings tambien
