THE NEW GYPSY KINGS (UK)
The Roma community is one of the most marginalised and impoverished in Europe and for years their traditional music has been their most famous export. Now a new type of Gypsy sound called "manele" has swept across the country. But the genre is controversial and traditional musicians, like the world-famous Taraf de Haïdouks, claim that manele has put them out of business and that the new genre is destroying the Gypsy music brand.
