My favorite gypsy movie. The fiddler pulling his string. Part 5 of Latcho Drom


VVVVVVVVVVV
Gypsy, I guess I felt a connection from watching the start of your offering. Did not know it was the same director. Thanks for the info. I love how latcho drom takes the gypsy culture from India and moves west chapter by chapter. Probably watched it 3 times now and will now watch your offering and look for the 3rd trilogy.
Thanks so much for raising my cultural radar,
Andy Tomaselli

That is Taraf de Haidouks. Latcho Drom is from the same director as the film above (Tony Gatliff). It is a trilogy. The third is set in Spain and titled "Vengo". Gatliff also did a film about I Muvrini called "Terra"

In this film the character Stephen keeps playing a tape of the singer from the group Ando Drom--Mitsou

in this case she is singing with one of my favorite French groups, Bratsch.

this is a Goran Bregovich song that is featured in another great rom film called Time of the Gypsies

Post 500 Muttering small talk at the wall while I'm here in the hall


The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B_K6z3HiRAs

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.


Drop your guns Lyndon and reach for the sky

Yeah, well I was busy finding something to sh#t on. But I'm happy to see all this fun music!

Andy, you'll be getting a Christmas Card for the 500th post. It's not from the North Pole, though it has something to do with Alaska.--Mr. Mouse Claus

I must say, Andy, that, since I relate to string-pulling in my own special way, I enjoyed the rom musicians to the max. They make those Shaym guys look tame in comparison.

Gypsy, thank you and everybody for the free concert c#m credit/no credit course in international music!

Ariel, my son, was walking on our dark mountain road tonight and was apparently hit by a car. I am told he is okay but I am on my way to the hospital to see for myself. I am pretty sure he has a broken leg.

I was going through my dad's "war box" this morning, full of his mementos from flying in Europe. Among the lists of equipment issued, the addresses, the travel ordes, the photos of mussolini and his GF hanging, there is a map of Paris and it is printed on the reverse of part of a German map of the Cap de Trois Fourches in Spanish Morocco. Guess where we're heading?

This is a map from the Wermacht or Luftwaffe depicting Cap de Trois Fourches in Sp. Morocco. It was probably used because paper was so hard to come by in Europe in WWII. There's a map of Paris printed on the other side, for the use of American GIs.

Conceivably, one might travel around the circumference of Africa seeking to record the local music. It must have been done already or I wouln't have thought of it.

Thanks Mouse! I was reminded of Page and Plant and thier tours there- the music was crying out for a raspy/ reverb / LEAD! Nice form on the Dancers though.. But the vocals were like listening to nails on a chalk board sometimes.;-D



edit: Good LUCK Gypsy!!!Hope its minor as can be!

I like nightingales, but prefer brown thrashers.
They are related to the mockingbirds, which sing all night, too.

say mouse, how much is a bird really worth?

If you say it depends on where it is, then I'll take you at your word.

you can find what you were looking for on the Long Learning thread.
