Synopsis

Amazon.com
Those wanting to dig deeper into Gypsy lore will find in this acclaimed outfit something far removed from the image of flamenco and the Gypsy Kings. Taraf de Haidouks all come from the Rom Gypsy village of Clejani in Romania, but they have played all over Europe to enthusiastic and discerning audiences. Theirs is a rollicking, frayed at the edges, and sometimes raucous melange of Romanian, Turkish, and Medieval roots, played on battered violins, accordian, cymbalom, clarinet, and double bass. The untrained virtuosity is astounding and remarkable in careening, klezmer-like dance numbers as well as their sultry, impassioned love songs and ancient ballads. Joined by ursari from the neighboring village of Mirsa, this is ground-level music from a resilient, outcaste people living the toughest existence imaginable, reflected in the beautifully photographed faces and places contained in the excellent sleevenotes. --Derek Rath

"The fact that you are even viewing details of this wonderful Haidouks record indicates that you are a decent, sensitive human being with a longing to connect to the Beautiful via choice musics. Buy this album with your next order and find yourself a week or so later with something wonderful that you can share with other humans like yourself.DUMBALA DUMBA is slow train into the Gypsy night that begins when you disembark on a lonely Romanian lane. A dog barks in the background and an old man tells a child a story which begins a call and response of the first order - the nature of this sort of music is to lose oneself within the ancient village that secretly we suspect life should really be like; the title track is a heady fun passionate exercise in Music and the rest of the album is just magic. Words fail me."
Wow!
