Haunting and stylish

danesfamily

The mixture of gypsy music with some jazz backing style makes for a plaintive, almost melancholy sound (try Avaj,avaj or Hanuma). I loved it! Try for yourself.

Great gypsy classics - updated.

Mostar Sevdah Reunion puts a contemporary twist on these great gypsy classics. I still prefer the more traditional renditions on this album such as "Opa Cupa", "Pena", "Jasmina"... as opposed to updated ones like "I Barval Pudela" and "Djeli Mara" but keep in mind they're all great. Mr. Bajramovic truly is a legend.

They Say All Music Guide

Sadan Bajramovic is definitely an old-school gypsy singer, with several decades of experience behind him. But don’t confuse age with taking it easy. His voice might not have the sharp edge it once did, but the energy is quite apparent, and there’s no lack of commitment to the music, especially as he’s backed by one of the best gypsy groups around on this set of mostly well-known gypsy songs. His version of “Djelem” is nothing short of stunning, but an emotional spin on an old favorite. But it’s just one among many jewels here, with everything electrifying, and the backing, mixing Rom music with some jazz, is every bit as effective as the singing. But it’s the final cut, “Pitao Sam Malog Puza,” which is the real killer, with Bajramovic letting loose some fearsome howls and singing as if his life depended on it. Female gypsy singers have received a fair amount of notice in the past. If you want to hear one of the male greats, this is the place. – Chris Nickson
