When the road bends: Tales of a gypsy caravan is the Buena Vista Social Club for Gypsy music. It captures the spirit of an amazing musical culture and the heart of the musicians and singers who express it.
Five Gypsy bands from four countries unite for the Gypsy Caravan as they take their music around North America for a six-week tour, astounding every audience they meet. Their musical styles range from flamenco to brass band, Romanian violin to Indian folk.
With fire in their bellies and soul in their voices, they celebrate the best in Gypsy culture and the diversity of the Romani people in an explosion of song and dance.

We travel to their homes, meet their families and see what music brings to their lives. The tales of these characters are woven between their performances - we get to know them and their bands intimately, allowing us to understand their music and to celebrate Romani history and culture.
