(in association with Small World)
The music of Les Gitans de Sarajevo harmoniously integrates outside influences into the various Balkan styles of music to create a “World” feeling. Their songs are filled with nostalgia and explore conflicting feelings on themes such as exile, the tragic outcome of separation and, above all, celebrations of Woman. The songs relate the pain of lost, inaccessible or impossible loves. LGDS add a whole new flavour to music from the Balkan and Eastern European traditions. Not only do they continue to play the seductive airs natural to gypsy music, they interpret it with a unique spirit that pushes the traditional into a modern context.
