Chauffe Vilbo! Musique of the Apaches.

Some incredible sweet and hot music was heard at the bals. Accordeons, banjos, clarinets and always the drive of the big bassdrum. The titles and labels should give you a clue. Mister Vaissade once hired a young banjoïste called Jiango...
Gypsies, pimps, ex-boxers. Mr. Gardoni sported a full set of golden teeth. Gangsters' style avant la lettre!
