Baro Drom Orkestar
power gipsy dance (ITA)
Baro Drom Orkestar is an explosive and exciting group coming from Florence (Italy) that combines tradition and innovation in the so-called “Power Gypsy Dance”.
They mix klezmer, Armenian, Balkanian music and pizzica from Salento (Apulia) with an unconventional ensemble: electric violin with effects, accordion, electric double-bass and modified drums.
Most of the songs are original compositions and even the traditional tunes are re-arranged with their typical “power-world-dance” sound. Italian temperament, passion and hot rhythm…World music with a rock attitude.
The last album is called “GENAU!” and it has been produced by the label Musicastrada Records and distributed in all Europe by Agualoca Records. “GENAU!” (that in German means “right” or “exactly”) is an explosive mix of original tunes with a lot of inspirations, from Eastern/Middle European Gipsy to the Mediterranean music, to make everybody dance from the first to the last song.
During the last 5 years they have played more than 500 live sets and sold more than 5,500 records. They attended the most important festivals and clubs in Europe: Moods Jazz Club (Zurich 2 times), SZIGET Festival (Budapest), Zwarte Cross (NL), Trefpunt (Belgium), Mas e Fee (FR), L’Etabli (FR), Isny Theater Festival (DE), Wangen Jazz Point (DE), Carroponte (IT), Lindau Festival (DE), Hoftheater Baienfurt (DE), Eine Welt (CH), Adriatico Mediterraneo (IT), Balkan Beats London (UK), Festival della Musica di Chianciano Terme (IT), Ariano Folk Festival (IT), Irlanda in Festa (IT), Musicastrada Festival (IT, 3 times), Negro Festival (IT), Sentieri Acustici (IT), La Tentation (B), Popularia Festival (IT), Kultur Festival (CH), Festival della Musica Etnica di Civitavecchia (IT), FLOG (Firenze two times), The Cage (Livorno 2 times), Arci Tom (IT), Fishmarket (IT), Sonar (IT 2 times) and many others…
