Juana Ghiani was an experience that went far beyond the bandstand. They have a familial tribal vibe going on that makes a fun atmosphere long before the music starts to play. Once they get started, the music kicks into dance-time, with clean controlled rhythms and expressive singing. I’ve experienced these same Euro-Folk vibes in France, England, and Holland ... the inclusiveness and simple fun are impossible to beat

The music is a savage, unrestricted mix of tradition, overlaid with rocking dynamism, suffused with unstoppable gypsy lust and dark desire, with an added touch of punk attitude. The soul of a wandering troubadour meets with a ‘take it or leave it’ approach built on the free-living nomadic essence that sets up home where the wheels stop turning. There are no boundaries and fewer restrictions, recognised or accepted. The intense feeling of musical freedom is so strong you could reach out and touch it. This album is as close to musical theatre as much as it is a sound recording, and it’s highly addictive. One listen tugs you into Juana Ghani's world of Eastern European inspired multi-influenced music and lyrics with a pull so strong you’re instantly living it.

Shall We Live Forever, is a masterpiece of gypsy-influenced music
