TARAF DE HAĪDOUKS is a vibrant group of Romanian musicians whose repertoire includes Romanian wedding music, violin ballads and accompaniments to jazz, classical and rock. They have performed with Yehudi Menuhin and the Kronos Quartet, played a prominent part in Tony Gatliff's acclaimed film "Latcho Drom" and appeared alongside Johnny Depp in Sally Potter's "The Man Who Cried." On stage, 12 musicians deftly pass back and forth musical creations that appeal to a range of music lovers far beyond World Music and Fusion fans. But however strange their new found fame may seem to themselves, their music stays true to itself, keeping a strange "edge", an undefinable charm. It seems to be getting better with each concert and new album, and they elicit ever more praise from the press. The oldest lead violinist is 79, there are others in their 60s and 20s, playing cymbalum, accordion, flute and powerful lungs. When Taraf return to their home village, the economy is boosted because modest concert earnings allow them to put their children in school and buy a few local goods, which is enough to keep the village going until the next tour paycheck. Clejani is a Romani village of musicians who were once in constant demand for weddings, but dwindling tradition has taken its toll. Now international tours are the goal. Taraf de Haīdouks (literally "band of brigands") is probably the best known of Gypsy musicians today.
