VA - Road of the Gypsies V1 (1996)

Road of the Gypsies is a compilation of 32 Tracks of different artists from different countries, from Afghanistan to Spain. Since their first migration westward, the gypsies, who probably arrived from India well before the year 1000, have made an unceasing contribution to our musical culture. Scapegoats wherever they go, victims of social rejection on the one hand and the romanticised imagery of literature and film on the other, the Rom continue to uphold their traditions, far from our technological and social upheavels, they nurture all the warms, profundity and sense of community of the Orient.

Tindersticks - NÉNETTE ET BONI (1996)

Uma presença dos britânicos Tindersticks no cinema, através da banda sonora do filme de Claire Denis. Um disco calmo e melancólico, com destaque para a presença do vibrafone, uma certa repetição dos temas musicais e uma caracterização de ambiente muito própria.

J.Serrano, A el Agujetas - TWO CRIES OF FREEDOM (1998)

The subtitle of this album is "Gypsy Flamenco from the Prisons of Spain," which it quite literally is, being the result of a nationwide talent search for the best incarcerated flamenco vocalists, with a reward of 5,000 pesetas (about 35 bucks!) and a reduced sentence. Gypsies are recognized as the finest flamenco artists in Spain, and a disproportionate number of them are in jail—so it's natural that the contest's two winners, Jose Serrano and Antonio "El Agujetas," would be gypsies. So, if you want a recording that was made under armed guard by artists who were led to the recording studio in chains, this is it.

Putumayo - GYPSY CARAVAN (2001)

Call this the melodic side of the Romany diaspora, an easier companion than the Rough Guide to music of Balkan gipsys, which covered not only Central Europe but also the Indian roots and even British tradition of the "traveling people," as they're known. Gypsy Caravan concentrates its energy on the song element, which can range from the klezmer style of Romanyi Rota to the more folkish quality of Ando Drom. The influence of the Rom on Spanish music is explored in the flamenco of both Thierry Robin and Miguel Angel Cortes connecting the dots between cultures and emphasizing the influence of the this oft-persecuted people. Frequently life-affirming in its joy, but also capable of aching, lamenting sorrow, Gypsy Caravan shines a warm light on one facet of an ancient and complex culture, making for a strong introduction to some intoxicating music.

The Gypsy Road stretches from Rajasthan, India to Andalusia, Spain and beyond, but it is the Balkan countries of Eastern Europe that are home to the largest Rom populations. Often scape-goated and caught in the middle of the twentieth century's worst injustices, from Belgrade to Bucharest to Skopje the Rom have had a profound impact on Balkan culture and music. Throughout the region, Gypsy music is Balkan music, transcending borders and ethnicities: energetic brass bands, violin and cimbolom virtuosos and captivating voices, The Rough Guide To The Music Of Balkan Gypsies has it all.

Lajkó Félix - ÉS ZENEKARA KONCERT' (1998)

Lajkó Félix was born in Yugoslavia (Vojvodina - northern Serbia) on December 17th in 1974. He started playing the zyther when he was 10 and won all the possible prizes in this category in Yugoslavia and Hungary. He first had a violin in his hand when he was 12, and has finished the six years of musical school in three years time. He has then finished his formal studies and turned towards concerting. Played jazz with Dresch Quartett (H), contemporary music with the Hungarian piano composer and player Szabados György and was a member of the Ensemble Ritual Nova of Boris Kovac. Has performed with Romanian born, London based Alexander Balanescu. Has played in Budapest, Prague, Berlin, Belgrade, Paris, Bordeaux, Frankfurt, Edinbourgh, Tokyo, Bratislava, Venice, Verona, Wuppertal and Monte Carlo. In 2001, Félix has played at the world famous theatre festival of Avignon and the most prestigious Theatre de la Ville in Paris and has had a very warm welcome at the Pina Bausch Festival in Wuppertal.

'I had heard that Lajko is regarded with awe in the Balkans, but was still unprepared for the impact of hearing and seeing him at such close quarters.... he attacks his violin with such ferocity that broken threads cascade from his bow during each number. There is a tendency for Balkan musicians to fit into one of several generic categories – gypsy, folk, Klezmer, etc – but Lajko seems to have invented a style of his own, and any reference to existing genres would be misleading. Each of his instrumental songs had a clear structure, and yet each seemed open to the spirit of the moment.'

Morphine - THE NIGHT (2000)

Último álbum de originais do trio de Boston, editado após o vocalista e compositor Mark Sandman falecer de ataque cardíaco no início de um concerto em Itália, no ano de 1999. Este álbum representa o sublinhar de uma nova sonoridade relativamente aos anteriores. É mais maduro e inovador e, infelizmente, sem sucessor.
