The Counterfeit Gypsies
Genre: Gypsy / World Music
performers: Six
contact: Kath Paal
This energetic six-piece Melbourne band posesses a big sound, which combines hot-blooded gypsy melodies with a hard swinging rhythm section. Their love of performing, coupled with the humour and passion of their show has allowed The Counterfeit Gypsies to transcend the confines of 'world music' to reach out to diverse audiences. The music is a cohesive mix of traditional melodies ranging from Balkan Gypsy Brass repertoire, Eastern European Gypsy and Folk, to Klezmer, Greek and Turkish tunes. The band has added its own particular flavour to this eclectic range of music with a focus on detailed original arrangements with multi-layered harmonies, strong grooves and driving beats. It really is the best kind of music to dance to.
