Pravda is an electronic gypsy swing band. Reinventing the ethnic music of Romania, Argentina and France in a more modern style, Pravda is a hot, new, non-stop, foot-tapping creation of stunning originality. Humorous and tragic, lighthearted and grave, this group of 'entrepreneurial socialists' has spun a superbly appealing tale through almost a decade of endeavour to realize this project.
A more energetic and inspiring live performance would be difficult to find. Pumping acoustic guitar rhythm and high, echoing violin lashes overlap with a groove swung so hard it borders on flam. Trumpet and clarinet weave melodies both familiar to young and old, yet sparkling with the inclusion of 21st-century music technology. This is dance music with an accent. And underneath it all, an almost freely comedic attitude towards the light-hearted ease of their skill. It's just music.
