Mah-e Manouche (The moon of the gypsies)
Homeland is a straying Fata Morgana. The music of Mah-e Manouche is rooted in many countries, speaking in varied tongues, freed from ideologies. The orient in its broadest meaning is our language, improvisation our grammar, because the moon of the Manouche shines everywhere the same. Yet our music is universal – only the spices are changing.
