Romano Drom is one of the most prominent representatives of the contemporary Gypsy culture in Hungary. Romano Drom, meaning "Gypsy's road", plays in original Olah Gypsy language with modern scoring. Although their original compositions are deeply rooted in the ancient Olah Gypsy music, they reach a wider audience by integrating the authentic gypsy melodies with influences from world music and several modern trends.
Their success lies in their unique fusion music that combines centuries-old musical culture with Catalan rumba, Arabic, Balkan and even pop rhythms.
In the musical arrangements, they utilize guitar, bass/double bass, as well as the traditional pot and spoon in order to achieve a unique and captivating sound.
The U.S. tour of Romano Drom is made possible in part with support from the Trust for Mutual Understanding.
