RE: My weird take on cultural appropriation

By the way, the reverse of this does not hold: gypsies can and do play the living hell out of western, “white” pop standards. This is Jimmy Rosenberg playing “I’m in the Mood for Love,” when he was maybe 15 or 16.  I used to hate this song. Not anymore. I can get emotional just thinking about Jimmy and his tragic life.  He toured the USA and was paid hundreds of thousands for his sold out performances … in cash, because he didn’t have a bank account.   Naturally, he quickly blew it all, and shortly afterwards, his career. He’s still with us, thank god, if barely.
