Buffó Rigó Sándor & 100 Tagú Cigányzenekar
Sándor Buffó Rigó and the 100 Gypsy Yiolins play Brahms' 5th Hungarian Dance. I knew Sándor quite well, he used to come to play in Geneva quite frequently in the nineties. The best moments were when he and fellow Hungarian gypsy musicians would gather in a restaurant and play together after hours. They would then play authentic Gypsy music, and it was exquisitely beautiful.
