New Mec Yek album ‘Super Diver City’ out now!

The gypsy incarnation that has developed from Jaune Toujours is called Mec Yek and Super Diver City is their latest recording.

MY SDC coverSuper Diver City contains some musical surprises: twelve tracks, nine particular arrangements of traditional Roma-songs, two songs written by singers Katia and Milka and one Amy Winehouse cover translated into Romanès. All nicely mixed together by Shazalakazoo, leading duo in Balkan Beats from Belgrade, Serbia. Also, against all expectations: Mec Yek is a gypsy band without violin.
