Stolen? Rightfully taken back!

Gypsy music seems to be holding a key to great emotional release for us members of Western civilization, stifled by the centuries old collar of “proper behaviour“. With its flamboyant melodies, manic rhythms and unrestrained passion it never fails to unleash our inmost desire to shake off the conventions. The lure of its (false) promise of absolute freedom is just too strong not to give in. And why shouldn't we? Especially if it comes from the Gypsy Devils, one of Europe's hottest Gypsy music bands. The full blooded gypsy virtuosi dazzle the audiences all over the world with the music of their ancestors as well as with their hot and spicy renditions of classical music, rightfully taken back from the likes of Brahms, Liszt and c. o., who lifted passages wholesale from their fathers and grandfathers.
Prepare for an evening of breath-taking cymbal acrobatics and burning strings of genuine gypsy fiddles letting all Hell break loose! Loosen your tie, kick off your shoes and let the Devil(s) take your soul!
