    I wonder if these Roma have seen ‘my big fat gypsy wedding’.

  2. Raven Shakti says:

    There is nothing as exquisitely passionate in music and dance, as Flamenco… I get lost in its awesome pulse

    and like to stay there. Opre Roma; beautiful and beautifully done!

    One of my earliest memories is drinking wine out of a goat flask in a Roma cave, listening and watching Flamenco music and dancing when I was 17 years old in Seville…I was hooked ever since.
