This week our guest is Cam Neufeld, musician and world traveller. Cam is going to speak to us about his recent musical travels in eastern Europe and his passion for gypsy music.
From Cam's CD "The Road to Django":
In the spring of 2010, Cam traveled the gypsy trail from Rajasthan, India through Turkey, the Balkans and Spain and ending at the Django fest in Samois, France for the celebration of 100 years of Django Reinhardt. He explores the through line of gypsy music from India to Samois. This fertile musical territory, infused with Cam's own sensibilities forged out of the traditions of blues, jazz and Canadian fiddle music, is at the heart of this project ["The Road to Django"]
