Night Train For Lovers And Thieves

Chart archive

Interpreter: Gypsy Groovz Orchestra
Label: Network
Location: Serbia

50 musicians, trapped in Serbia by blizzards, join forces and record a selection of improvisations and adaptations of traditional tunes. Later the recordings are posted on the internet and like-minded individuals add their own parts from all parts of the globe, producing a musical journey through time and space. Fuelled by cigarettes, slivovitz and pickled cabbage, the result ranges from moody and atmospheric to brash and confrontational, in particular the 35 minute-long 'Hot Water Festival', delivered here in 6 parts for your convenience. A textbook exercise in cooperation.
