At Contra Carnivale 2009 held in San Luis Obispo CA the weekend of Jan. 16-18, Notorious, a folk ensemble comprised on Eden MacAdam-Somer, Larry Unger, Sam Bartlett, and Mark Hellenberg, showcased their musical talents during the Sunday concert when they performed various tunes for an appreciative audience.
I recorded the concert using a new AVCHD camcorder, the Canon VIXIA HF100, that I mounted on a tripod next to the performers so I could capture the best sound as possible. Detailed instructions for acquiring HD footage that could be used to produce YouTube and iPhone/iPod Touch videos were found on lynda.com and kenstone.net.
Below is a link to the song medley that Notorious selected as their closing piece: Gelem, Gelem, also known as the Romany National Anthem, followed by a traditional Romanian folk dance tune called Aoleanul de la Petreşti. This medley also appears on Notorious’ latest CD titled Elkins.
