(Rom. = Blood Sisters)
A collection of Roma songs by people who preserve and cross-pollinate the world's traditional music heritage.
Roma music is the traditional music
of the Rom, people who are also known as Gypsies. Through the centuries these nomads survived,
thanks to their wit, their craft, and their music.
Roma music has a great variety, mixed with strong local colours of the lands, where the Roma lived.
Their singing is often dramatic and passionate, with deep melancholy, but also with pure joy.
