• Short Summary

    Mario de Pietro and his band play gypsy music.

  • Description

    Part of ANCIENT AND MODERN issue.

    Pathe Studios, London

    Various shots of a scattered pile of photos of variety entertainers.

    Mario de Pietro is introduced to the camera by the guitar player in the band. Both have posh English accents - they don't sound at all Spanish! As well as the guitar, the other instruments in the band are the banjo (played by Mario), the double bass, the accordion and the violin. All the musicians wear satin shirts and floppy hats - they are supposed to be gypsies. They play upbeat gypsy style music.
