For Gypsies music is religion and music comes from their religion. Music comes from the soul and so whether we are in Paris or Bucharest or playing Swing or Bolero, the soul of the music tastes the same. Tinel Dragoi is from Romania; Rom Gypsy Father, Romanian Jewish Mother. Violin was his only option in life. Jose lives his professional life on the streets of Sydney, Gypsy Style, playing on every street corner. The combination is like an electrical storm in the Bohemian mountains
