2006 Gypsy Music Festival Takes New York By Storm
Published October 2, 2006

Building on the success of the first New York Gypsy Festival in 2005, the 2-week joyful and passionate Fiesta Romani is returning for its second installment between September 24 and October 8, 2006. Once again, the festival offers a broad perspective on various styles of gypsy music and dance against the backdrop of New York City, which, being the crossroads of many cultures, is essentially gypsy at heart.

The 2005 New York Gypsy Festival featured music from a wide geographical region including Bulgaria, Turkey, Russia and the Balkans with performers such as Gogol Bordello (pictured), Ivo Popasov & Yuri Yunakov, Husnu Senlendirici, Hungry March Band, Zlatne Uste, Leningrad and more than a dozen of local bands. The 2006 Festival continues featuring high caliber local and international talent of Gypsy (Romani) music with artists like Costel Vasilescu (Romania), The New Generation Gipsy Kings (France), Honved Dance Company (Hungary), Husnu Senlendirici (Turkey), KAL (Serbia) and Frank London (NYC). Gogol Bordello's Eugene Hutz will curate and host an evening featuring music by Kultur Shock (Seattle), Kalpakov Trio (Russia), Acquaragia Drom (Italy) and a DJ set by no other than Hutz himself. Additionally, "Gypsy New Yorkers" and Balkan brass bands like Romashka, Slavic Soul Party, Hungary March Band, Zagnut Orkestar and Russian gypsy dancer Julia Kulakova will also take part in this year's festival.

The event is presented by World Music Institute and Mehanata Meyhane and produced by Serdar Ilhan and Alex Dimitrov, the producers of last year's Gypsy Festival.
