Here are two french 10-inch lps from “Le Club Francais du Disque” (issued, I believe, around the end of the 1950’s, or beginning of the 1960’s) which features Deben Bhattacharya’s recordings. The first one is called “Ryhtmes et Meélodies du monde gitan” and is a sample of gypsy music from around the world. There’s a bit of everything in this 30 minutes tour of the gypsy world: Dance tunes, songs and romances, Hungarian Café music, a church service, flamenco guitar,snake charmer music, etc…. You’ll hear bits of music from Roumania, Hungary, Yugoslavia, France, Andalusia, India and Bulgaria.

This is the new cd edition of vol. 17 of The World Library, a survey of Romanian folk music recorded from the 1930’s to the 1950’s. It includes ballads, songs, dance tunes, ritual and pastoral music. The recording quality is excellent and the liner notes are very detailed and informatives but most important the traditional music you will hear is truly beautiful, both the vocal and instrumental performances are fascinating pieces of music you won’t hear anymore as most of this traditions are almost exctinct today or have been too much “folklorized”.

This volume was uploaded by a reader of this blog many months ago so i would like to thank him here.
