One of the evenings in the village of Viscri is spent around a bonfire listening to a live gypsy band playing their traditional music for us. Roma people are one of the largest minorities in Romania and their music has left a large imprint on the local culture. They are often expert musicians and entertainers.  We are in for a treat!
