THIS AND THAT
Joaquin, my friend and comember of Lolo Diklo, commented that it's telling that the Romanian audience booed Madonna for her statements in behalf of the Roma, yet never booed the dancers and musicians who are Roma. Everyone loves our music, but they hate us. Where is the logic in this.
Thanks Madonna, Gogol Bordello and Trio Kolpakov.
Tony Gatlif (Latcho Drom, Gadje Dilo...) has a new film Liberte which means freedom. It tells the destiny of a Gypsy family in German occupied France in 1943.
Ellie Greenwich, who wrote such classic songs as Chapel of Love, River Deep Mountain High, and Be My Baby died Wed. of a heart attack in New York. She was 68 years old.
