Hearty, sharply played Gypsy show music from Eastern Europe

The Cornflowers (Vasilyochki)

by Zina Pavlova – on the album “Sing Gypsy!”

Our tour of 11edaab6401aa000840e8a2e441dd70bcffb3ca1 the ‘forgotten fifth’ of unplayed tunes on Spotify continues with more from Eastern Europe, in the form of nicely performed and recorded gypsy and gypsy influenced music from the Slavic lands, as sung heartily by the full-throated Zina Pavlova.

There are elements of polka and other European pop forms mixed in here — this is not insider gypsy music — this is show stuff, but performed with plenty of enthusiasm and sharp professionalism.
