Subject: RE: Help: Gypsy/East European music
Just the other day, I saw on TV the Russian movie mentioned "The Gypsy Camp Ascends to the Heavens", based on a story by Maxim Gorky. The songs aren't bad.
Russian Gypsy songs are usually romanses, that is, art-songs. There are plenty of recordings which should be available from anywhere that sells Russian music. Just ask for Tziganskiye romansy.
