5.0 out of 5 stars Addictive Writing, 12 Aug. 2013
I thoroughly enjoyed reading Fisk's column in the Independent newspaper and also his history of the Middle East, so I got this as a 'dip in, read a bit, skip a bit' holiday read. It was so utterly brilliant and interesting that I read it from cover to cover, before the holiday!

5.0 out of 5 stars Historically fascinating, 12 Aug. 2013

Gatlif has directed several films putting Romani music at the heart of them ( most notably 'Exiles' starring everyone's favourite Romain Duris, and the brilliant 'Swing'). Latcho Drom is my preferred Gatlif film, and is documentary style with very little dialogue - so the Korean bad subtitles weren't a particular nuisance. This is a visual and musical feast, we are taken on the Gypsy route from India, across to Turkey, through Eastern Europe, middle Europe, Frsnce and eventually to Spain ; and the connection between Indian music/dance and flamenco becomes utterly apparent, as does a culture, and sadly, a whole history of persecution. Lovers of this film should also enjoy Jasmine Dellal's 'Gypsy Caravan: Where The Road Bends', which is less historical but shows similar links and gives a fascinating insight into modern Romani culture.
