Does anyone know where I can find gypsy violin music?

    I like the violin, though I don't play myself, and especially gypsy style violin music, but I don't know where to find any. Do any of you know what's good? Songs, artists, albums that I can actually go to a store and buy? I tried google searching, but nothing substantial turned up. Could be because I improvised the term, I don't know if anyone else uses it.
    Just as an indication of what I mean:

    (also: the bit played by lestat and the gypsies by the shore in 'Queen of the Damned', which many of you might know)

    Let me know if you can help me out, people.

    All best wishes,

    I assume you mean recorded music that you can enjoy listening to as opposed to printed music that you can learn to play (since you say you don't play yourself).  I would think Amazon would be the best/easiest place to start.  Also, our Border's and Barnes and Nobles bookstores are great for ordering what you want.

      Thank you for the reply. I did mean recorded instead of written music.

        I liked it and what do you know: they actually have it in my local music store, at least according to the website...
