"This fine French guitarist and oud player has gathered a delightful group of singers and players to explore the highways and byways of Gypsy music. The sounds of Western and Eastern Europe, of Pakistan and India, and of North Africa all join beautifully on this excellent CD. From out of the east come the memorable female vocalist Gulabi Sapera and tabla maestro Hameed Khan. The powerful flamenco voices of Paco el Lobo and Bruno and Mambo Saadana meld with well-played guitars, oud, accordion, frame drums, palmas, and the occasional clarinet for an inspired and bracing set of tunes. Liner notes in English, French, and Spanish translate lyrics that celebrate life, face death unflinchingly, and speak of the mothers' tears that link this world to the next."

"One of the most interesting French gypsy guitarists today"

Los Angeles Philharmonic / Hollywood Bowl

""Gitans" was not only ranked as one of the best albums of the year by critics around the world, but it is widely considered one of the best albums of Gypsy music ever recorded."
Dan Rosenberg, The Gypsy Road
