The Gypsy band Gulo čar of nine members plays funky jazz music strongly influenced by Gypsy melodies and harmonies. Pop-dance rhythms and typical phrasing of funky music with an original feeling represent a combination ensuring this band an inexhaustible amount of energy. The song lyrics draw on the traditional gypsy poetics and they are interpreted in the Gypsy language.

Gulo Čar was in 2003 on tour with one of the most important and famous Czech pop band (Mig21), across the biggest cities of the Czech Republic. In March 2004 they received the prize Anděl in the category World Music, the Czech equivalent of the Grammy Awards. In April 2004, a TV station from Holland, NOS, shot a document about the band. On the 2nd of May they played on the festival United Islands of Prague in the T-mobile Hall as a guest Band to the French stars Gipsy Kings.

Gulo čar emerged in a well-known quarter of Brno where blacks and whites live in a distinct kind of coexistence, while almost all Gypsy members come practically from one street. This quarter is inherently characterized by a certain greyness and seediness but also by music which is its inseparable part. Already for some years, the core of the band has combined the traditional Gypsy roots in a natural and creative way with all contributing influences of modern pop production. Particularly two players of the brass section contribute to the mutual influence and merge of diverse musical impulses and methods and they are the only white-skin members of the band. In the melting pot of this process, the inherent musicality with the experience of bar musicians and technical preciseness are the basic ingredients of a phenomenon which currently does not have any analogy on the Czech music scene.
