Immerse yourself in a strange and entrancing musical tradition with Super Rats, Canberra's masters of classic Romanian and gypsy songs from the outskirts of dusty old Bucharest.

Bubbling forth from a cauldron of diverse influences – Ottoman court music, raw Balkan peasant folk, a smattering of tango and jazz – the 'lautari' style had a golden age in the cold-war hotel-restaurants and seedy bars of Romania's capital in the 60s and 70s. Super Rats bring you rare gems of this style with panache, humour and dedication to the beauty inherent in these crooked old melodies.
