Program „Gipsy Way“ or „Gipsy Fire“

The most succesful and sought after musical project of Pavel Šporcl and gipsy cimbalom band.

The program Gipsy Fire is a follow up of an album Gipsy Way. It is a combination of great mastery, temperament and wild gypsy blood. Pavel Šporcl has given more than 250 concerts with this program in countries all over the world including China. After successful tours in 2009 and again in 2011 (with an orchestral version), he managed to sell out the legendary music venue Lucerna not once but twice. In 2010, Pavel Šporcl´s Gipsy Way was presented during the prestigious Smetana´s Litomyšl Festival (more than two hundred and fifty thousand people watched the recording on the Czech Television2) and International Music Festival Český Krumlov. Both CDs Gipsy Way (2008) and Gipsy Fire (2014) were awarded Platinum Record status by Supraphon.
