As Gypsies have a natural affinity to music, they play a host of varied
instruments. At different times and in different countries they have
mastered the lute, harp, balalaika, accordion, drums, and many other
instruments. However, hardly anyone would object to the statement that
the instruments most characteristic of Russian Gypsies are guitar and
violin. This section is devoted to them.
Here you may see
the biographies of the true masters and, if you wish, hear their
performances. However, there is no need to lock ourselves within
national borders. Instrumental Gypsy music from Spain, Hungary, France
and other countries will also be included in the "Guitar and Violin"
