Recorded live at the Golden Festival
in NYC, January 2019.
We played a concert program in the
quieter hall. Not dance music, but
We do a lot of songs in "Romany".
The people we call "gypsies" call
themselves "Roma". But "gypsy", and
similar names for these people in other
languages, have very negative
associations. So it is just politeness to
call them what they call themselves:
Their language is "Romany".
And these names have nothing to do
with the country of Romania, or with
the capital of Italy.
