Gig Information

Australia and New Zealand Gypsy Lover Tour 2018 | Faith i Branko | Serbian Roma /UK

Leading Serbian Roma violinist and UK accordionist perform high-energy original Roma/Jazz influenced music with international quartet.


'Musically a delight..these virtuosic performers are a major discovery this year' The Guardian, UK
'Moving, breathtaking and virtuosic' Lopa Kothari, BBC Radio 3, London

Branko Ristic – ‘a performer that Paganini would be proud of’ [BBC Radio 3], and UK born ‘nimble accordionist’ [The Guardian] - Faith Ristic, form the core of this international quintet - combining the accordion, violin, effects pedal and tabor pipe with double bass and guitar to take the audience on a journey from melancholy Roma violin laments to storming ‘kolos’ and explorations into jazz improvisation, swing, Gypsy Rumba and Turkish and Indian influenced songs.

Performing with The Cosmonauts - Wellington based trio performing music from Eastern Europe, The Balkans and Italy.
