The Gypsy Caravan - Tribal Technique Volume 6 Back CoverThe Gypsy Caravan musicians play a combination of traditional and modern instruments. Percussion instruments, such as the dumbek, davul, tar, and conga, match the dancers vigorous hip movements. Melodies played on various wind instruments including zurna, mizmar, arghul, and flute inspire the dancer's arm gestures. Together they all contribute to an exhilarating and sometimes mesmerizing sound.
The Gypsy Caravan dancers use props such as veils, swords, baskets, and finger cymbals to demonstrate their skill as well as to enrich the performance. Although some of the dances are choreographed, the dancers use their improvisational instincts to ignite the music with the spontaneity of the moment. A balance of precision and grace showcases this dance as both intoxicating and powerful. The resurging interest in this dance style allows the Gypsy Caravan to both educate and entertain their wide and ever growing audiences.
