DEEP SONG : Adventures with Gypsy Songs and Singers by IRVING BROWN
"DEEP SONG" means the gay, pathetic, passionate and often tragic folk song of the gypsy. For fifteen years the author has traveled with gypsies of every continent, and in his picturesque account of these wanderings, he shows every phase of gypsy life from birth to death.
Extraordinary men and women, these gypsy singers, who are proud, who love and hate, fight and suffer, expressing their joys and sorrows without thought of recorded recognition. They are true poets and true composers. Wandering from land to land they have gleaned from many civilizations, but have been absorbed by none.
Many of these songs are here for the first time given to the world, and their background is shown in the amazing personalities and customs of their singers.
