    Infectious and volatile, Russian Gypsy music reflects a vibrant culture that has triumphed in the face of adversity. Driven by the distinctive seven-stringed guitar, this release celebrates the enduring strength of Russian Gypsy culture.

    Made up of legendary guitarist Alexander (Sasha) Kolpakov, his nephew and one of the most renowned gypsy guitar virtuosos in the world, Vadim, and the phenomenal violinist Arkady Gips, Kolpakov Trio made international headlines last year performing as part of Madonna's 'Sticky & Sweet' tour. 'Grastoro' is previously unreleased and the talent of Sasha and Vadim can be explored further on the Kolpakov Duo bonus CD. Violinist Nikolai Erdenko is one of the most important performers of Gypsy music in Russia and on 'Gori Lubov Ziganski' he combines the intimacy of Russian romance and the passion of Gypsy folk songs. His daughter, Leonsia Erdenko, is also featured on this album playing a Russian version of a Macedonian Gypsy anthem on 'Lumba'.

    This album also features the legendary ensemble Gelem, the St Petersburg-based band Trio Rita, violinist and singer Alexeji Dulkevich and previously unreleased music from contemporary Roma singer Vyacheslav Vasil'ev among other Russian Gypsy gems.

    'stirring compilation featuring the little-heard music of Russia's sizable 'Ruska-Roma' Gypsy population.' Limelight (Australia)

    'plenty of agile playing and yearning' 3*** stars, Songlines
