Bohemian Nights is a Melbourne duo featuring violinist Ernie Gruner and accordionist/singer Phil Carroll. The song titles on the self-titled CD that we’ve been enjoying hint that they play music spanning the European continent and beyond. There are tangos and tarantellas, polkas and klezmers (Jewish dance tunes). I particularly love the moodiness of this music; it can quickly descend from joyous celebration into a gloomy lament. Also, I want to learn the accordion.
Here is a sample of Bohemian Nights, dancing in a circle is optional:
