Of all the musicians I've have worked with, Gypsy Stars have become the most constant in my life. We met very early on, when they were busking in Brighton, and did our first gigs together that year. Within a few weeks of meeting, we went to a studio to record together, and then when we didn't have enough time to finish everything in a days session, the band leader Dudek, invited me to his house in London to record . Within a few minutes of arrival, I had a plate of food in front of me, and Dudek was playing recordings of Roma music festivals he wanted to re create in the UK, whilst telling me about how his people had originated in India. It didn't take long before I was a regular at their house, and visits were always social as well as music. We've become good friends and I hope it will continue for many a year!
