Jasmine Dellal, Director, Gypsy Caravan

Hear this show now: | Add or read comments


The film Gypsy Caravan, screening at Village East Cinemas (2nd Ave between 11th and 12th Streets) in Manhattan - and elsewhere around the country - documents the World Music Institute-produced Romani (Gypsy) music mega-tour of 2002. Shot in part by music-doc legend Albert Maysles, the film intercuts concert and tour footage with segments shot back in the artists' home countries.

The film features a glittering array of leading touring Romani artists from around the world: Antonio el Pipa (Andalucia, Spain), Esma Redzepova (Macedonia), Fanfare Ciocarlia (Romania), Maharaja (Rajasthan, India) and Taraf de Haidouks (Romania).

Director Jasmine Dellal initially made her cinematic mark with American Gypsy, about a US Romani family. She talks to Rob about her experience taking the Romani on the road. And we hear music from the Gypsy Caravan soundtrack / companion cd on World Village records.

Here’s a rundown of openings of the film around the country:
