"Ando Drom is a group of young Hungarian Gypsy musicians fusing pure Gypsy music (as opposed to the "cabaret" forms much scorned by Gypsies) with their current modern sensibilities. As such they run a precarious tightrope between the acceptance of their peers and that of the outside world, but such is the passion for their roots they succeed admirably on both accounts. Gypsy music is sung primarily for Gypsies by Gypsies, and the material on these 13 cuts reflects that tradition. Ando Drom will vary the content according to their mood at the time, also part of the spontaneity of the Gypsy tradition. Joined by members of Bratsch, the five-member band--fronted by the amazing singer Monika "Mitsou" Juhasz Miczura--romp through impassioned songs reflecting the hard life of the Gypsy fraternity, with plenty of exhilarating improvisation, both vocally and instrumentally. When violins, guitars, and accordion aren't enough they will manufacture the needed parts on milk pans, spoons, and vocal bass lines, creating a living, breathing music far removed from any cold ethnologic exercise. It is easy to understand why the music has tenaciously survived as an expressive force over centuries of hardship. With excellent liner notes, Phari Mamo is essential listening for anyone interested in Gypsy culture."

Anonymous 1 again: A fair question considering the number of cretins you probably deal with, but I am not one of them...this time. Yes I clicked the link, then found out it worked with IE7, but still won't with Firefox.

Anonymous 2 again -- thanks to Anonymous 1, I tried in Safari, and it came up without a problem. There seems to be some glitch with that link and Firefox (or maybe a Firefox plugin...). Anyway, all's well, and thanks for the great music you post. Looking forward to hearing this!

Brilliant and thank you! And now--a year and a half later--the links works in Firefox just fine! :)
