Šaban Bajramović is the most prolific and most celebrated Roma singer, composer and poet in the Balkans. Amongst the thousands of articles and studies globally written about him, not a single one omits linking his name with the expression "The King of Roma music"

Šaban Bajramović was born on April 16, 1936 in Niš (Serbia). Like many of his people, Šaban hardly attended school while picking up musical education on streets. He first recorded in 1964 and nowadays his discography consists of some twenty albums and over fifty singles. According to his own estimate, he wrote and composed about seven hundred songs.

The 10-track CD 'Gypsy Songs' is one of his latest and greatest releases, a highly wonderful insight into King's music.
