Old Gypsy Songs

14. 5. 1997
Ida Kelarova (voice)

Everyone who sings creates. For a song is a means of expressing one’s truth, a way of searching for the voice in the depths of one’s innermost self. This is especially true of the Roma people. So I believe that we should learn more of the meaning of their songs, if for no other reason than to find a way of expressing our everyday pain and joy through our own song. “The tones and rythmn in the song are just a path to keep us from straying. We may walk quicker or slower, or stay awhile to lie in the grass… in tune with our own mood.” The Roma people have always known this, so let their songs teach us too. This CD is dedicated to all those Romas who still keep up their strength and their hope.
