Mappamundi plays "Opium" by Polish Jewish composer Artur Gold

Sadly, we don't have room for this song on our upcoming "Cabaret Warsaw" project but I love the melody. Artur Gold was a fantastic violinist and band leader as well as a composer - search youtube for his name and you'll hear magnificent things. Here is Adam Aston singing the song with Gold playing fiddle.
