“larynx-straining ecstatic male vocals” — fRoots
Playing household items — pots, cans and spoons — alongside modern instruments such as guitar, bass and drums, Romano Drom (“Gypsy Road”) exudes the soul and passion of the Roma people. They are one of Hungary’s top Gypsy bands, and they sing in the original Olah Gypsy language. With profound emotion and energy, Romano Drom plays both centuries-old melodies and modern concoctions infused with Catalan rumba, Arab, Balkan and pop.
Romano Drom U.S. Tour is made possible in part by The Trust for Mutual Understanding.
