Product Description


technical comment

  • Stand Up, People presents the diverse and almost forgotten sounds of 60s and 70s Serbia, Macedonia and Kosovo, with nineteen tracks that highlight the flowering of Roma Gypsy culture in that period. The songs have resurfaced thanks to the vinyl-hunting efforts of London's Vlax Records, who have rescued the original 45rpms from provincial fleamarkets across the Balkans, or dug them out of the darkest corners of the vaults of the National Library in Belgrade. All the tracks were then painstakingly restored to their former analogue glory at Carvery Cuts Studio, London.

    - Stand Up, People digs deeper into the corners of Balkan Roma music than ever before
    - rare early recordings from the King and Queen of Gypsy music, Šaban Bajramovic and Esma Redžepova
    - incredibly rare Kosovan Roma music. This work has lain unheard for decades
    - lovingly restored audio
    - released as both a striking double 180g vinyl LP and as a beautifully designed CD
    - detailed liner notes, packed with photographs, exploring the history of these Roma musicians and of the Yugoslav scene they pioneered
    - complete English translations of all the Romani-language songs
    - extensive PR campaign by Vlax Records
