Na Kamel Ma

Posted by shanoah on December 8, 2008

We agree a lot, don’t we? At least on the important things. Djelem Djelem is a good song. And, you know, I was looking at Putumayos online store, and was suprised to see Gypsy Caravan is only $10 currently. With the music on it, that’s quite a deal.

And, hell, I really wish Putumayo paid us for hyping their cds. We’d be making a bundle right now.They also have a “Gypsy Groove” cd, btw, for $15 (with the Amsterdam Klezmer Band on it). But here is another artist from Gypsy Caravan, though this song isn’t.

Na Kamel Ma – Ando Drom

The band Ando Drom’s founder is Jenő Zsigó, who was a family counselor. He tought families about the art, music, dance, and culture of their own ethnic groups. He created a foundation for promoting Romany art, helping and motivating young talents, and to help Romanies encounter their art in communities, and the band Andre Drom formed from all this. You can read more about it on their website.

It’s great to see people doing inspiring things like that, though.
