Emir Kusturica & The No Smoking Orchestra 2007 Time Of The Gypsies

Genre: Gypsy
Rate: 320 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 00:51:53
Size: 118,63 MB

While Gogol Bordello has the Ukraine, The No Smoking Orchestra have the Balkans.

Billed as a "Punk Opera" this is really just crazy gypsy music. For me, while "Unza Unza Time" is a better album (faster and more mad), this is a more rounded product and gives a truer impression of what Balkan music sounds like in reality.

The music is brilliant, the singing is heartfelt (sometimes awesomely pompous sometimes fantastically raucous), and there are helpful translations to all the lyrics should you want to be even more befuddled as to what they're on about!

Don't bother trying to understand - open a bottle of Montenegrin Vrnac, pour yourself a rakija, and prepare to drink and swing your way into oblivion, cos this will help! (
