“Nevasta mea” (“My wife”) is an engaging Gypsy dancing song with influences from the music of the Gypsies belonging to the Pannonian region, “fehér bőrű cigányok” (“white gypsies”) called “gabori”, which is distinguished by both rhythm and lyrics , a musical style that differs from the popular “manele”, which have influences from the Balkan folklore music and from the Romanian old fiddlers’ music. The song, with Romanian lyrics written by Alina Ianc, is the newest record by Roby de la Timisoara, a 2017 Baluba Studio production, and is a lyrical ode to wife, without whom the identity model of traditional Gypsy culture can not be created: the family.
