Red Room Audio Gypsy Fiddle is the third instalment of the popular Traveler Series – a growing collection of boutique sample libraries for Kontakt featuring traditional world instruments faithfully recorded on location from destinations around the globe.

Gypsy fiddle playing is known the world over for its passion, romance and virtuosity and the music is synonymous with the campfire and the open road. Gypsy fiddlers tend to be highly skilled. Their playing swoops dramatically from the highest to the lowest positions, using cascades of arpeggios, chromatic runs, harmonics, pizzicato, exaggerated vibrato and extreme ornamentation.

To record Gypsy Fiddle, the Red Room Audio team traveled to Sofia, Bulgaria where they had the pleasure of working with renowned violinist Stoimen Peev. Stoimen is a member of the elite Sofia Soloists and Sofia Quartet ensembles as well as the Sofia Session Orchestra & Choir and has performed classical and traditional Bulgarian music all over the world. Their lively sessions were superbly directed by co-producer George Strezov and engineer Ivan Boshev at “The Bakery” studios in Sofia.
