ČAČI VORBA (pronounced Chachee Vorba) - "true speech" - is a term used by gypsies from the Romanian/Hungarian/Serbian borderland to describe music, as they believe that music is the most honest, true language.

ČAČI VORBA is the name of a Polish-Ukrainian band specialising in the impulsive mixture of Gypsy, Carpathian and Balkan music. ČAČI VORBA musically traverses all over the Old Continent and arranges its sound-mosaic in their own way, right from the beginning, transforming traditional melodies of Roma, Hungarians, Slavs, Greeks and Middle East while preserving their passion and dance dynamics. The group serves a virtuoso fusion of ethnic music, Roma swing, Romanian blues, Hutsul wedding dances and Mediterranean timbre, performed on traditional instruments such as Hungarian bracsa, Turkish kemence, Greek bouzouki, Romanian cobza or Middle-Eastern darabuka and dombek - doing without electronic support.

Band's soloist Maria Natanson, «the uprising star of Polish folk music scene», and her bandmates create a new, border-crossing, original musical language; a musical dialect that gets the heart of all that's common - happiness, passion, longing, sadness - simply the "true speech".
Musicians of ČAČI VORBA, by taking the pattern from the past Gypsy masters, cleverly smuggle several motives from different musical cultures. Moody Roma ballad interweaves with the Azer note and the French musette; the mythical story about «Carpathian Hercules» sounds, as if somehow Romanian cioban have listened with attention to cool jazz meanwhile oriental sounds from the suburbs of Bucharest in a strange way make someone thinking about salsa.
