Romano Drom 's unique musical world got them resounding success and made them one of the most sought after world music band with a Gypsy heritage.

Romano Drom, meaning "Gypsy´s road", plays in original Olah Gypsy language with modern scoring.

Although their original compositions are deeply routed in the ancient Olah Gypsy music, they can reach a wider audience by integrating the authentic gypsy melodies with influences from wold music and several modern trends.

Their success lies in their unique fusion music in which Antal Kovács (founder and composer of Romano Drom) combines the centuries-old musical culture with Catalan rumba, Arabic, Balkan and even pop rhythms. In the musical arrangement, he is utilysing guitar and bass, as well as the traditional pot and spoon in order to achieve a unique and captivating sound.

Profound emotions, energy and honesty. This is how the music of Romano Drom can be discribed. Their music proudly carries on the traditions of the predecessors, while tapping into a contemporary subconcious. Through this modern bridge they can successfully convei the ancient energy even to those, who have not been touched by this culture before.
