Jean-Christophe Hoarau – La Guitare Tzigane

An overview of Gypsy guitar styles from France, Hungary, Romania, etc. The various traditions encompassed by the term gypsy music, almost always include similar instruments such as the violin, accordion, guitar, double bass or cimbalom. This traditional use of string instruments should be put into the perspective of Indo-European musical traditions in general.
Gypsy musicians have developed a very particular style for each instrument they play, often combining extreme speed and improvisations ornamented with trills and appoggiaturas. In this music, the guitar is generally an accompaniment instrument, even if it is not unusual to hear it play themes or improvise like violins or accordions.
