This looks like a truly epic concert. I’m looking forwards to watching the whole thing when I’ve got a spare couple of hours, could be one for Sunday night.
The band are Emir Kusturica & The No Smoking Orchestra who have been around since the 80s but only really reached my ears via the film ‘Black Cat, White Cat’ which Emir directed. I have also just discovered that he directed a live Gypsy Punk Opera called ‘Time Of The Gypsies’. There’s a recording of a performance in Paris that I’m just about to track down, looks and sounds right up my street.
I shall be DJing a Gypsy set on 26th October at Tribe Of Frog in Bristol (and a Swing / Gypsy set at The Moon in Cardiff earlier that night as it’s Womex Weekend, more on that later). Be great to see you if you’re in the area.
