"An extravaganza of musical genres woven into truly unique and memorable compositions"
- Creative Loafing
Gypsy At Heart has created their own unique style of rhythmic-acoustic sounds that are based around a fresh musical vision. Based out of Atlanta and Athens, the music of Gypsy At Heart weaves a fusion of eclectic musical genres from traditional Indian Ragas and Middle Eastern scales, to Nu- Jazz, Latin, Celtic, European Classical, and American Folk. Original compositions take audiences on a musical journey; blending improvisations that are spatial, and beautiful; flowing into movements that are breathtaking in intricacy and speed. As the group portrays progressive, unique soundscapes and arrangements, their melodies are flavored with a familiarity that touch on the timeless folk music of the world. While most pieces are instrumental, lyrical songs make known deeply thought provoking poetry that will touch one's soul.
At the core of Gypsy At Heart, are two accomplished musicians: Joe Leone on guitar and vocals, and Souryadeep Bhattacharyya on sarod (banjo meets sitar). Their shows vary from intimate duo performances to a full group experience with Jeremiah Raj on oud, a Middle Eastern percussionist, tablas, and a cellist.
