THURSDAY, JAN. 21. 6:45 pm. FREE FILM/Donations only (All Donations go to support KBOO and Clinton Street Theater).
JOURNEY OF THE BEAUTIFUL STRANGERS/ LATCHO DROM. With free performance @thedjangophiles swinging gypsy caberet ensemble will open the evening with a short performance at 6:45 and film starts after the set. KBOO and the Clinton Street Theater present the stunning film LATCHO DROM- a first-class introduction to the story of Roma (gypsy) music and culture. Tracing a chronological 1,000-year-old path of Romani migration from Rajasthan to Spain, the film music features a myriad of different styles from the Indian subcontinent, Egypt, Turkey, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia, France, and the flamenco Gypsies of Barcelona.

Many well-respected acts like Taraf de Haidouks and Hasam Yarim are featured as well as many unknown but extremely talented Gypsy artists.

Whereas the film paints a picture of a struggling society, the collected music illustrates the resilience of these outcasts, with the majority of tracks being effervescent dance music echoing many cultures.

There are reflections of tragedy and sadness, notably from Romania, but these are more than balanced by rocking Balkan block parties, Turkish cabaret, and French guitarists swinging as hard as Django Reinhardt. --Derek Rath
