Lautari (Gypsy) Fiddle from Romania/Moldova
Middle School Rm. 105/106 -- 6:00pm to 6:50pm Saturday April 20 E
In Romania and Moldova, the "Lautari" musicians of the Roma people built upon the local pastoral music to create a rich, swingy, highly-ornamented musical tradition to which the fiddle was central. Mierlita plays a collection of tunes from the repertoire of the Moldovan Lautari master Marin Bunea.
