With sensitivity, virtuosity, & extraordinary energy, Triple ARIA-winning band Monsieur Camembert brilliantly weaves Gypsy music with other World Music styles, to create a truly original and intoxicating blend…from Russian Gypsy songs, to tango and klezmer, from Gypsy swing to Latin grooves, “…they pick you up & carry you on a wave of energy, excitement & poignancy that never relents…the band play with such cohesion, energy & abandon that I experienced an emotion so foreign I barely recognised it: elation.” (John Shand, SMH)
