After an exciting debut at the Big Sur World Music Festival at Esalen July 4th 2012 - "This Passionate, High-energy, gypsy soul-fire acoustic ensemble take their listeners on an exotic scintillating journey of sensual grooves and wild crescendos you can't help but move to. Their masterfully rich instrumentation, is both complex and precise, gritty and hot. The Gypsy Samurais get their unforgettable sound from the band's core string virtuosos, Gary Carpenter on guitar and Dany Cobo on violin. Taking music with african, flamenco, latin and jazz roots into some deliciously sexy and cerebral places."
