This original ensemble of a quartet with vocals will present a unique programme assembled from original works and transcriptions, ranging from classical repertoire to folk music originating in the travelling community. Hailing from various Central European countries, the scores are characterised by the use of the cimbalom, accordion and clarinet in Hungary and Romania to produce sounds with strong ties to the Roma world. This innovative soundscape shines a unique and poignant light on what is a captivatingly beautiful repertoire. An experience to transport you to unforeseen places!
