Gypsy Heart is ideal for dancing, movement classes and celebration. An exciting blend of gypsy and modern beats.
“These tunes are for dancing. Most of them will take you from a slow beginning to a fine frenzy at the finish, and some will keep you in an energetic groove with a steady beat. Some of the tunes are original, but most have been danced to for generations wandering to wherever dancing feet are ready to enjoy them- like the Gypsies whose magical violins have long been my inspiration.” ~Ashik
“Delightful music in the gypsy genre from Ashik, some tracks his own compositions, others traditional tunes from the cafés and fairgrounds of Eastern Europe, woven in with Andean flutes and Belfast fiddles. Ashik’s masterly violin is underscored throughout by a vigorous double base and a generous serve of gypsy cheek and swagger. Tunes that immediately tap the toes are also elegant and non-intrusive, like a skilled violinist playing beside a tête-à-tête dinner table. Never overpowering, you can listen to this music anywhere and see everyone start to smile and sway, even jump up and jig! (I caught myself playing air violin in the bathroom…) Fun stuff and a risk free gift: if unsure of a friend’s musical tastes, this CD will fill a gap in the most comprehensive musical collection.” – Osho News
