"Having performed over 600 hundred concerts in 40 countries worldwide over the last six years, the Dhoad Gypsies are the undisputed cultural ambassadors of Rajasthan. The group is a collective of consummate musicians and vocalists, both young and old, wise and spirited, and their music is enjoyed the world over for its emotive and rousing style and its unparalleled rhythmic complexity and speed. Their heritage reaches back seven generations through a rich and celebrated musical legacy. They perform a diverse repertoire of traditional Rajasthani folk music and semi classical North Indian compositions on tabla, harmonium, dholak and castanets. Dhoad Gypsies' new album Roots Travellers manages not only to capture the effervescent spirit of the group, but also bring centuries of tradition into the present." Bonus all region short film DVD; running time: 30 minutes.
