Steve Gibons' Gypsy Rhythm Project plus El Payo Nuevo Flamenco Member Picks

When: Thu., Aug. 26, 8 p.m. 2010

"Gypsy Rhythm Project…led by violinist Steve Gibons has grown into one of Chicago's go-to groups for stripped-down, old-fashioned Roma music—and there's only one ringer in the bunch, cimbalom virtuoso and Romanian expat Nicolae Feraru. Gibons and company bring the improvisational sophistication of jazz to Romanian and Bulgarian Gypsy music without smoothing out its ragged edges; bassist Dan Delorenzo and guitarist Mike Allemana embark on some pretty wild harmonic excursions, and drummer Tim Mulvenna deftly juggles the shifting meters no matter how brisk the tempo... the city’s best practitioners of Roma music." --Peter Margasak, Chicago Reader
