Taraf De Haidouks - Band of Gypsies (2001) Retail CD
Fans of Romania's top band will need no bidding to buy Band of Gypsies, but for those not yet familiar with this extraordinary bunch of virtuosi some history may be in order. A few years ago they were "discovered" by two young musicologists on an exploratory field-trip, and the European tour which resulted made them superstars overnight. They made three CDs which fuelled the fire: this fourth, recorded live in Bucharest for an audience of devotees, will certainly fan the flames. This time they've added new ingredients to their basic mix of voices, saxes, clarinets, violins and cimbaloms: they'more…ve joined forces with the top Macedonian brass band Kocani Orkestar, and with Turkish percussionist Tarik Tuysuzoglu, to create their own brand of fusion. And of course it works: nothing can quench their unruly exuberance, or the wild extravagance of their solos. Here is their singers' characteristically wide vibrato, and the cimbalom-lilt which underpins the slower songs; other tracks are dizzyingly fast and furious. But if you enjoy this compilation, get hold of their earlier Dumbala Dumba and Honourable Brigands: there the music is sparer, more suggestive, and the village ambiance works its gentle spell. --Michael Church
