Gitana: Gypsy Music And Its Influences

« previous episode | next episode »

As the Roma journeyed through Europe and beyond, the native music and that of these travelers combined to create an energetic and exotic confluence unlike anything else. This week Bill McGlaughlin samples some of this music and its antecedents.

Exploring Music is an EXCELLENT show... I try to listen every night.

The week of Gitana/gypsy music was especially magnificent.... I only wish I had accessed the playlist closer in time to the actual show, so that I could purchase some of these wonderful Roma compositions.

Thank you Bill!
