I think this is a great CD. Really cool. Collection of songs from different albums, with a write up and photos in the cover. It amazes me that someone was even able to track all this music down for the compilation, let alone that it was recorded in the first place.
Tito's rule of Yugoslavia is known for many things but one of the more surprising and special elements was the promotion of Roma culture. This was clearly a fruitful time that gave birth to the songs that are featured on this compilation album.
Music being a central part of everyday Roma lives and ritual practices, this is music with real soul behind it and with distinct geographical mix and influence from across the Balkans and even India.
Absolutely recommended and essential listening, it is unlike anything I've heard in a long time and will certainly make you want to learn more about the music of the Roma.
This is an absolute buy Music both exciting and moving Every track reveals a unknown to most world in grand way This lable always surprises and delights This is no exception There are no stand out tracks they are all musical highs Buy it ....turn it up ....and dance
