Gypsy Enchantment

a spell was cast...

"She is dancing away from you now
She was just a wish and her memory is all that is left for you
To the gypsy that remains... her face says freedom"
- Fleetwood Mac

There was something seductive and sensuous about the unusual combination of exotic instruments on this soundscape. The romantic image of the gypsies: colorful mysterious people who wander the world... free spirited “people without borders” seemed like an appropriate title...

About the Music
This soundscape is another international mash-up. The tune starts off with lovely Indonesian Sasanado accompanied by the finger-tapping sound of the Brazilian Pandeiro. This tango-like groove continues over blues chord changes behind the trombone. The sweet sound of three trombones soon take over the melody and then the bass Native American flute then jumps in for a solo after the bridge.

That's a helluva lot of cross cultural juxtapositions!
