Svenko Band. Video

 
Svenko band, video. Gypsy song and Gypsy dance.

Gypsy girls are dancing in bright dresses in the broad field. Black hair is waving in the wind, necklaces of gold coins, soft movements of bare feet… You’ve been missing it, haven’t you? Come to our camp and be our guests! There is the name of our band in popular Gypsy couplets we are singing: “So za svenko Romano?”.

Our tabor is in the way. Gypsies are singing a melancholy song “Kay o Bergi”. You would be surprised to discover that it is not at all old (the text was written in 1970-ies). But this heartwarming melody brings us back to the past. We can hear music of roaming roads in it… Solo by Pyotr Yanyshev.

Do you remember Pushkin’s poem? “Horses are grazing in the field, and a tame bear is lying near a tent… Noise, voices, Gypsy songs…”. The musical background for this video is an ancient tabor song “Syr Mange Prikhayape”.

Dances in the open air again!

We dance in real tabor clothes on the stage too. During this concert Anzhela Batalova sings a boisterous folk song with humorous words “I am not afraid of frost!..” Moscow audience have always liked her merry dance.
