“The BUENA VISTA SOCIAL CLUB for Gypsy music. It captures the spirit of an amazing musical culture and the heart of the musicians and singers who express it.” – CINEMATIC INTELLIGENCE AGENCY

Much like Tony Gatlif’s LATCHO DROM, which invited audiences to bask in the glow and enchantment of Gypsy music, Dellal’s mesmerizing GYPSY CARAVAN travels the globe to follow five famous Romany groups as they venture from the far-reaching regions of Romania, Macedonia, India and Spain through a whirlwind tour of the United States. Spectacularly dazzling concert footage is interwoven with intimate, revealing portraits of the individuals, tales of, not only suffering, but determination and strength, of cultures rich and warm in spite of resounding poverty and racism. The delicate balance between their on and off-stage lives is beautifully crafted, delicately capturing a world known to so few. As we delight in sharing a piece of their excitement, we find that they are reveling in getting to know each other as well. It is a savory celebration of diversity and drive featuring performances by the Macedonian diva Esma Redzepova, the traditional Indian folk troupe Maharaja, the zany brass band Romanian Fanfare Ciocarlia, the violin wizardry of Romanian group Taraf de Haidouks and the phenomenal Antonio El Pipa Flamenco Ensemble.
