Gipsy.cz Gipsy.cz are like a dog that constantly barks and bites...but everybody loves them. Thereīs really something attractive about their raw music and unscrupulous lyrics. The groupīs rumpled style evokes an atmosphere of Romany ghetto, where most of the band members, including rapper Radoslav Banga, spent their childhood. Thatīs why the Romany question is the main topic of Bangaīs lyrics. However, thereīs no moaning but objective and sometimes cynical view of this delicate issue. Last year Gipsy.cz attained considerable success as they were chosen to perform at the legendary Glastonbury Festival. It was the first time any Czech band appeared there. Hopefully it was also the European breakthrough for this dauntless gypsy ensemble. // Jan Kyncl
