Gypsy Road: Musical Migration India to Spain

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
Few compilations of Gypsy music are as broad-minded as Gypsy Road. Other collections have focused specifically on the folk of Russian Gypsies or the flamenco of Spanish Gypsies in Madrid. But with Gypsy Road, Alula spotlights Gypsy artists from all over Europe as well as parts of the Middle East. The Gypsies who enrich this CD come from India Musafir and Turkey Kemani Cemal, as well as Spain Gerardo Nunez, Casta, Italy Acquaragia Drom, and France Energypsy.

Gypsy culture has, of course, been a part of Eastern Europe for centuries, so it's only right that several tunes on this album would be recorded in that part of the world. The Eastern European Gypsies heard on Gypsy Road come from Bulgaria Yuri Yunakov, Hungary Ando Drom, Kalyi Jag, Romania Taraf de Haidouks, and naturally, Russia Loyko, Kolpakov Trio. Many different languages are heard on Gypsy Road, and the instruments vary from one country to another. But as diverse as this CD is, one can hear the parallels between these artists. Most of them use what is called "modal" or "scalar" playing; even if you don't understand the technical meaning, you can recognize modality when you hear it. Modal playing is also used in everything from Jewish klezmer to Indian raga and Algerian rai. Gypsy Road is a fine collection that world music enthusiasts should make a point of acquiring.
