Gipsy Rhapsody Band, the successor of the iconic Gipsy orchestra Romalen, will have a concert on 15th November (at 9pm) at the Kolarac Endowment in Belgrade.
The band came about with the purpose of reinventing the former Romalen orchestra which was very popular in Serbia back in the 1960s and 1970s. Brothers Bosko and Danilo Vasic founded Romalen, while Danilo Vasic’s son is the founder of Gipsy Rhapsody Band.
The band performs a variety of musical genres – from the traditional Serbian, Roma, Romanian, Russian, Greek and Spanish music to evergreens and classical music greats like Brahms.
The band currently has 20 members and there will be several guest appearances at the concert by opera singer Tanja Obrenovic, the legendary Serbian folk singer, Merima Njegomir, duo Vesna Dimic and Biljana Petkovic and others.
In January 2018, Romalen would have celebrated its 50th anniversary. They were also known as one of the favourite bands of the former Yugoslav President, Josip Broz Tito and had performed for him many times.
