Kal is a contemporary Gypsy band from the suburbs of Belgrade formed by the Ristic brothers, Dushan and Dragan, to confront the prejudices and clichés the Roma face. Dragan, a theatre producer who has set up Romani theatre groups in Budapest and Belgrade, and Dushan, a painter, aimed to use Kal to blend influences from traditional Balkan Gypsy music with the contemporary music they heard whilst living in Belgrade and Budapest. The brothers also lead the annual Amala Summer School in their home village in Valjevo where students from across the world come to learn Roma language, music and history.
