Romanian Roma music.
'The Romany incontestable gift for music is one domain where they excel.
They have other traditional occupations but no one has their magic of
music; of the fiddlers when they are caressing with their sounds the soul
of those who are delighted by this divine gift; of the art of singing and
The Romanies have other traditional occupations but no one has the magic of
musicians; of the fiddlers when they are caressing with their sounds the soul of those who are delighted by this divine gift;
the art of singing and dancing.
These recordings are a sample of the wealthy of these musicians, of this nation who tries to keep intact the tradition and the fiddler’s original genre.
We all have this duty to protect this ancestral music and to preserve it.
The lyrics in Romany confer to these songs originality and personality and we hope that such great virtuosi as George Udila, Fulgerica Leonard, Ghita and Nasturica, with the soloists Gh. Lambru, Neluta Neagu or Vali Mocanu, will charm your souls as it has to be in a great family in which we are each one a part.'
