Shukar Collective - Urban Gypsy (2005)

The Shukar Collective was born in Romania from the meeting of traditional ursari musicians (ursar means 'bear tamer' or 'bear handler') using spoons, wooden barrels or darabuka, and electronic music. What results is urgent, soulful, highly original and distinctive sounds. Some of it is a little difficult, but standout tracks like 'Gypsy Blooz' remain accessible and awesome.
