Taves Bahtalo! ‎ (CD, Album). Urban Gypsy ‎(CD, Album).

While a bit late for the main rush of gypsy music imports out of Eastern Europe, the Shukar Collective luckily enough didn't need to ride a trend. The group consists of some traditionalists from the new generation (as well as the older Tamango, the senior of the group) of gypsy musicians playing percussion-based ursari music from Romania. Over the top of that however now lies a layer of electronica, dub, house loops, samples, and more. The trick is in the fusion of the old and new.

Shukar Collective: Urban Gypsy Three Roma traditionalists aged 24 ("voices and primitive percussions"), 38 (lead singer, strikes barrel with stones or booted foot), and 62 (spoons player and singer, emulates Louis Armstrong) join five habitués of Bucharest's electronica underground in an ethno-techno that sounds mighty real as long as it doesn't overdo. Ululating or speed-chanting, uttering words or sounds, vocalist Napoleon is the main dish. The enhanced beats are spice.

The Shukar Collective was born in Romania from the meeting of new generation musicians with the gypsy traditions of Shukar founders Napoleon, Tamango and Clasic. Shukar play ursari music (ursar means 'bear tamer' or 'bear handler') using spoons, wooden barrels or darabuka to create a powerful and urgent sound that is at the same time emotional and soulful. Urban Gypsy combines Shukar's original ursari music with the new technology of the collective, resulting in their distinctive sound. Sample this album Artist (Sample).

Shukar Collective (from the Romany word Shukar or Şucar, meaning "fine") is a Romanian musical group which fuses traditional Romany and electronic music. It is especially known for using traditional rhythms employed by the Ursari section of the Roma minority with contemporary electronic sampling.
