Das Konzept The name "Romanca" was given to the ensemble quite recently. Previously, we used most of the time the name "Baro Drom" meaning "The Long Way". It was "long" because the ensemble had a long history of activities with several generations of artists cherishing the traditional sound of Roma folk music. Nowadays our ensemble consists of young generation of Roma artists who still cultivate their folklore, although they present it in a somewhat "build up" version.
The Roma folklore is international and its music is quite diverse as it differs in sound and style depending on the country it comes from.
