"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. Their music draws upon many genres from traditional Indian Ragas and Middle Eastern scales to hints of Latin, Celtic, European Classical, Jazz, 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. Gypsy At Heart has been mesmerizing their audiences with unique soundscapes, arrangements and captivating melodies... Consistently praised by audiences as one of the "Must See Live Acts!"
At the core of Gypsy At Heart, are two accomplished musicians and composers: 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 oud, tablas, cello, and an array of hand percussion instruments.
Gypsy At Heart is currently performing their original music at live venues, festivals, colleges and universities, churches, spiritual centers, and private special events.
