About the performance:
More than just a musical performance, Faith i Branko tell spellbinding stories in song. Their performance is steeped in Roma, Serbian, Iranian and UK culture. Sharing their own personal travel tales and intimate knowledge of these cultures. Expect an exciting mix of instruments from the accordion and violin to the tabor pipe and double bass. Faith i Branko 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.
Faith and Branko first met in Branko’s Serbian Roma village, with music as their only tool for communication they began a journey that would lead to the creation of their award-winning album ‘Gypsy Lover’, their marriage and their successful international touring. Branko taught himself the violin, which became a way out of the extreme health, social and economic problems through which he lived in Serbia.
Creating his own music, he intuitively combines sounds of Jazz, Indian, Turkish and Classical music with his Roma traditions. For this current tour, Faith and Branko are joined by Iranian guitarist and singer Pouya Mahmoodi, and dancer Mari Lon, who both offer an insight into Iranian musical culture and the techniques and delights of Balkan dance.
