The observant reader will already have seen Besh O Drom mentioned on these pages before, but it took until now for an album (their first in more than five years by the way) of this Hungarian band, trying to lift the Balkan genre to the twenty-first century, to land on our desk. Sure, 'Kertünk Alatt' still counts enough authentic sounding Gypsy songs ('Csángó Leány'), but the band states also being influenced by rhythms from Egypt or Greece, Afghanistan and Armenia with the Hungarian taragot in a leading role. That all results in a fresh, modern sounding album that made yours truly yearn to see them play live!
