"Playing their very own brand of Gypsy, Balkan Funk, Chavo, are back with a bang and a brand new record. Don’t Wake The Dead is out now on Batov Records and we caught up with the band at their recent album launch at Passing Clouds to talk about where they’ve come from, their style and their influences and what the future holds."
