CD Reviews

A CD that captures the struggles and triumphs of the Rom
Veggiechiliqueen | 04/10/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Latcho Drom" was a most unusual film: a combination road film/documentary/music video that chronicled the journey of the Rom (Gypsies) from Rajathstan, India, to Egypt, Turkey, Slovenia, Hungary, Bulgaria, Germany, France and Spain. The selections on the CD represent centuries of musical absorption from this melange of cultures. A fabulous collection of Rom music spanning different styles and genres, this is a CD to be treasured for its uniqueness, variety, spirit, and testament to the survival of the Rom. There is lively flamenco, French guitarists jamming as hard as Django, Arabic dance tunes, an Auschwitz lament, Indian music, and Romanian and Hungarian melodies tinged with the sadness of outcasts and the wearisome roads the Rom have travelled. Buy the soundtrack, but above all see the movie "Latcho Drom" for an experience unlike any other!"
Fantastic music
dzintars | 07/12/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The film Latcho Drom is a unique product, which is more like a 2 hour long music video, showcasing gypsy music from all around the world. This is an amazing way of seeing the common treads that unite roma (or gypsy) culture in all parts of the world, but also how these people have adapted to their surrounding by adopting bits and pieces of local music traditions. For fans of "Deep Forest", one of the songs from the film, the one from Slovakia, was sampled for one of their pieces on "Boheme." This album has rapid beats and hell taping rythms, but also sad and melancholic songs and laments. A true pleasure to listen to. I just hope there would now be a Latcho Drom 2 to explore the other regions of the world where roma culture flourishes, but which were not included in the film."
The music of the Gypsy soul

"Having seen the film twice, I looked forward to listening to the CD. Well, it's marvellous. A wonderful range, arising from the spread of the Rom (my ancestors) from northern India to western Europe. There are times when your foot won't stop tapping. But the most moving piece is the old woman singing the lament about Auschwitz. It brings tears to my eyes every time."
