To celebrate their 25th anniversary, the acclaimed Gypsy band Taraf de Haïdouks revisit some of the old styles which have enchanted audiences worldwide: Gypsy love songs, poignant Romanian ballads and traditional dance tunes, alongside breathtaking Turkish-flavoured instrumentals.

For the first time since the sad demise of the older generation of vocalists, Ion Manole, Neculae Neacsu, Cacurica and Ilie Iorga, the band have taken a retrospective look at their career. To do this, they've enlisted former collaborators, such as superb vocalists Tsagoi, son of the legendary, late Neacsu, and Gheorghe Manole, son of Ion Manole, as well as the flamboyant singer Viorica Rudareasa, the woman who sang the band's iconic song "Dumbala Dumba".

The band was formed back in 1990, by musicians who previously had only been playing at their village's social occasions, baptisms, weddings, funerals, harvests etc. Since their first tour in 1991 Taraf de Haïdouks gained an international following and were soon to be acclaimed as "the best Gypsy band in the world" by the Independent. Their countless fans have included the late Yehudi Menuhin, the Kronos Quartet (with whom they've recorded and performed), actor Johnny Depp, fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto (who invited them to be models-cum-musicians for his Paris and Tokyo shows), choreographer Pina Bausch, and many more.
