Romano Drom, while maintaining its roots and traditions, has always been capable of renewal, and has played Vlach Gipsy tunes in a way that creates a contemporary music experience. The unique fusion music of the band – composed by Antal Kovács jr – mixes the hundreds of years old music culture with Catalan rumba, Arabic and Balkan pop rhythms besides such solutions in which the interesting harmony of drums and other instruments accompanies the traditional sound. Listening to Romano Drom’s music, it’s not an informant band the audience can hear, but Antal Kovács composer’s songs, and the high level art of the band members.
Romano Drom is one of the most prominent representative of the contemporary Gipsy culture in Hungary. Since it’s foundation in 1999, the Band have travelled the world from Cairo to New York, South Korea to London, Peking to Oslo. The band toured in the Middle- and Far East, made several successful tours overseas, and played almost all the countries of Europe. In 2019 the band celebrates it's 20th anniversary with a new album release and starting a world tour.

The music of Olah Gipsy Beats thus formed it is traditional and modern at the same time, a very unique fusion of the ancient songs played still in rural gipsy areas, and the popular songs played in the big cities, mixed with other country’s music. The frantic and dinamic coral voice of 7 lead singers (5 man and 2 women) will be accompanied by the traditional can, spoon, for the traditional rythm, guitar, and the instruments known mainly from the balcanic gipsy music, such as horns, accordeon, base, drums and percussion.
