This electrifying sextet—hailing from Romania, Serbia and the UK—fuse together Eastern European, Balkan, Gypsy and Classical music in a whirlwind performance of frenzied virtuosity. Foot-tapping rhythms and fiery melodies infuse two fast-paced, high-energy sets from this exciting young group. Specialising in bringing rare or lost traditional Balkan music back to life, both the curious listener and the well-versed aficionado are sure to enjoy a host of surprises and fast-paced entertainment.
Recently, the band has developed both its line-up and repertoire, focusing on bringing rare and lost traditional Balkan music back to life. In 2012 the band appeared on BBC World on 3 and Radio 5 Live and was also featured in Channel 4′s ‘Come Dine With Me’.
