Faith i Branko (SOAS Concert Series) - 27/01/2017 Mon, 2017-04-24 12:28

A love affair with Roma music

Faith and Branko Ristic, an English-Roma couple, take the audience on a journey from melancholy Roma violin laments to storming ‘Kolos’ and explorations into jazz improvisation, swing and Gypsy Rumba with their high- energy performance. Branko’s violin soars at break-neck paces over Faith’s ‘nimble accordion accompaniment plus selected guest musicians. Branko – a self-taught virtuosic Roma violinist with an eventful personal history opens his heart in their slower compositions, revealing at times the sadness beneath the wild virtuosic revelry.
