Lushers Love a Chanson


Bristol Beacon, 6th July 2013 – Gurt Lush Choir with St Mary Redcliffe All-Star Orchestra & Youth Choir.

Matyilem is a traditional Roma song of regret for drunken misbehaviour and the Gurt Lush arrangement is based on a 1995 recording by Ando Drom, a Roma/Gypsy music ensemble from Hungary.

Matyilem has not been nearly as widely covered as more famous Roma songs like Ederlezi or Zaspo Janko.
