A little about Romano Drom

Romano Drom means ‘gypsy road’ in the Romani language, and since the band’s foundation in 1999, they have travelled the four corners of the world, captivating audiences with their unique brand of gypsy heritage. Led by Antal Kovács who co-founded the group with his late father, the album combines reworkings of age-old gypsy songs with new compositions ranging from drinking songs and dances, to stories of love and hardship. Singing in their Romani mother tongue, the band’s music is characterized by an energy and heartfelt integrity all its own, as they continue to build bridges between their down-trodden ancestry and contemporary music.
