Fusion has always been a way of life for the gypsies, who are traditional wanderers. These days, musical cross-fertilizations are jet-propelled, but the flamenco fire is seldom extinguished. Flamenco artists can hail from Germany (like Ottmar Liebert) or live in the chilly climes of Canada (like Oscar Lopez)/a>/a>

Gypsy Fire based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This collection of consistently lively, rich and sensual numbers features a variety of “New Flamenco” artists. Included are works by Oscar Lopez, Jesse Cook, Ottmar Liebert, Strunz and Farrah, Govi and many more. I’m not sure how this wonderfully Latin music ends up in the New Age section of the CD racks rather than World Music, since it doesn’t sound “New-Agey” at all, but it’s great to listen to regardless of its classification. Consistently compelling, “Gypsy Fire” is my favorite of the Narada “New Flamenco” samplers to date. Other compilations in the series include “Gypsy Soul”, “Gypsy Passion”, “Obsession” and “Flamenco Fire and Grace”.
