Gypsies are taking over Central Park!

Fanfare Ciocarlia, Central Park - 7.14.2013 | 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm - SAVE THE DATE  

We all heard about the bad gypsies of Romania, the swan eaters, the "S'il vous plait, Messieurs, Mesdames!", the pickpocketers. That is hardly a throughout description of a people with such a rich culture. If you really want the real gipsy experience, listen to their caravan music. Their are the best in live representations. FanfareCiocarlia's concert will be anything but boring: nothing is stable and every new interpretation is unique. There is no score; the notes come from the heart. There are no rules. The music breaths through trumpets, trombones, tubas and woodwinds, a violent, liberating rhythm for which Romani music is so well known, impossible to replicate even by the most virtuous artists at the Philharmonic.
