Great show. I'm trying not too get too carried away after seeing Justin Adams & Juldeh Camara the other week, but I keep coming back to the thought that Adams has gone a considerable way towards filling the Strummer-sized hole that exists in the area where contemporary British rock music meets its past influences and the music of the world today (with Juldeh Camara as his Tymon Dogg?).

Oh dear - pretension, hyperbole and bad grammar in one short post - better go and do something useful :-)

It's taking me awhile to hear the entire show. For some unknown reason, I keep being disconnected, sometimes from the sound, other times from the network. Every day, each time I play it, I get a little farther into the show. Today, I'm only about 20 minutes from the end and have heard the first few tracks as many as 6 or 7 times, those towards the end once or twice. Listening to a show in this manner can really highlight that which one would like to skip over. Nothing thus far, neither music nor conversation. Or, one can tire of the overall tone. Not the case either.It's a great show.

That was happening to me too. It does with other BBC shows I've listened too as well recently. Possibly since they redesigned the i-player (or whatever they call it).

I found that you can just reload immediately and fast forward to where you just were.

Although, obviously there is something to be said for the re-listening you've been enjoying too. If only I had the time!

Thank you, Julian. It would have probably taken me beyond the 7 day 'listen again' limit before I figured that out. And yes, this did start after the recent re-designing.

Charlie, when you played this I was struck by how beautiful this person's voice was, and I couldn't work out if the vocalist was female or male. At first I thought it was (Dona C(?) or Donu C...) the male singer who you have played before on one of your programmes, who is also from Romania. If someone had played this to me and asked me to guess where in the world that piece of music came from I would not have come up with Romania. Anyway, the music/ song put me in mind of Carlos Gardel for some reason.

Nikki, Romica was very much a woman - a pint sized Gypsy Queen and one of the 20th Century's great vocalists. She would be better known but a car crash on the way back from a wedding performance took her life in the early 1990s. Balkan roads claim too many lives. Such a shame as she was not old and by all accounts a wonderful character - as well as the best Romanian singer of her generation (perhaps of any).

The similarity you mention to Dona Dumitru Siminica - a man who many mistake for a woman, so unearthly is his falsetto - is understandable as both are working in a similar genre of Romanian Gypsy song. And both were backed by similar musicians - The Gore Brothers were legendary Gypsy instrumentalists who played many a session.

Odd to think that Romania under Ceausescu's dictatorship recorded so many fine Romany artists. And recorded them well. Bulgaria? Nil. Czech? Few. Hungary? Some but not on the same level? etc

The Romica Puceanu CD on Asphalt Tango is a must own - extraordinarily beautiful music!

Garth, many thanks for this information. I think I will buy this CD. What kind of era do the recordings come from? I don't think I know anything about Romica Puceanu - but I like the music that I have heard so far. I suppose I could check on the internet, really. I am intrigued by The Gore Brothers, now. I shall have to investigate. Once again, many thanks for the tip.

Nikki, the recordings I'm aware of were made in the 1960s and 70s - i'm sure Romica was still recording right up to her death but I'm only aware of these "classic" recordings. Very beautiful music - comparable to Billie Holiday (tho lacking the misery) and co'. Enjoy!

Now you're on the slippery slope, Nikki, you might as well buy all the Asphalt Tango "From a Bygone Age" series. There are four of them to date, all uniformly excellent, and in my (humble) opinion they deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as series such as the recent African Pearls compilations. A real treasure trove of previously completely unknown music (to me anyway).

Thanks to you, Con and Garth for the information. At least I have some recommendations to keep me going...I might have to get a second job to pay for them though....
