CAˇCI VORBA (pronounced Chachee Vorba) - “true speech” - is a term used by gypsies from the Romanian / Hungarian / Serbian borderland to describe music, as they believe that music is the most honest, true language.
CACI VORBA is the name of a Polish-Ukrainian band specialising in the impulsive mixture of Gypsy, Carpathian and Balkan music.
ˇCACI VORBA musically traverses all over the Old Continent and arranges its sound-mosaic in their own way, right from the beginning, transforming traditional melodies of Roma, Hungarians, Slavs, Greeks and Middle East while preserving their passion and dance dynamics.
The group serves a virtuoso fusion of ethnic music, Roma swing, Romanian blues, Hutsul wedding dances and Mediterranean timbre, performed on traditional instruments such as Hungarian bracsa, Turkish kemence, Greek bouzouki, Romanian cobza or Middle-Eastern darabuka
and dombek - doing without electronic support.
Band’s soloist Maria Natanson, the uprising star
of Polish folk scene, and her bandmates create
a new, border-crossing, original musical language;
a musical dialect that gets the heart of all that’s common - happiness, passion, longing, sadness - simply the “true speech”.
