French Gypsy music
Alliance Française, Singapore- French Gypsy Music (French Gypsy-rock & Yiddish-pop music) featuring Les Yeux Noirs:
An advertisement on this eclectic group’s upcoming performance in Singapore caught my eye. Live Gypsy music in Singapore!
This is a rare occasion to listen live to a very vivid and jumpy form of music. A quick search on YouTube unveiled these 2 interesting videos on their music, which sounds like a concoction of music from different time and place.
Watch this for a sample of the diverse range of their music:
Their music is said to combine elements of Jazz manouche and other gypsy music, Yiddish and Klezmer music. Their style combines traditional melodies from their many inspirations, including modern Jazz styles. Personally, I found it impossible to sit still while listening to their music. Their music, both strange and complex, has the magical ability to transport me across time to another era or to a faraway land where nothing seems normal. It also makes me feel like jumping to my feet and start dancing.
Listen to this lovely song:
Here is how Alliance Française described the performance, “The concert night at the Alliance Française de Singapour promises to be an epic journey in a world without borders, flamboyant, an exciting adventure in the lands of the Roma and poets.” I think it will certainly be an unforgettable night. The performance will happen at Alliance Française de Singapour on 12 April 2012. If you have watched it, do comment and share with us how you find it.
