Faith and Branko + Dj Jon Bongly

June 1, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - June 2, 2019 @ 2:00 am

Leading Serbian Roma violinist Branko Ristic – ‘a performer that Paganini would be proud of’ [BBC Radio 3], and English ‘passionate nimble-fingered accordionist’ Faith Ristic [Rhythms Magazine, Australia] perform virtuosic original Roma-influenced music with their international ensemble.

The duo met in Branko’s Romani village in 2009, and – with music as their only tool for communication – began a journey that would lead to their marriage, their last album ‘Gypsy Lover’ being placed in the top 10 World Music Charts, a successful international touring schedule and a soon to be released documentary. From a foundation of ‘Serbian-Roma’ music, Faith i Branko have created a style that draws from both of their musical heritages and expresses their unique personal connection. This forms an original set with a storming ensemble which is joyous, passionate, tragic and virtuosic: ‘their music is as colourful, personal and tumultuous as their history’ and Roots.

Later, a Magic Garden regular and with good reason, DJ Jon Bongly specialises in feelgood beats and retro remix – phenomenal sounds from electro swing, pulsing techno & wriggling tropical rhythms. Party guaranteed!

The Magic Garden – COVID-19 UPDATE

 

To all of our wonderful customers,

As people across the UK adjust to life during these extraordinary times surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak, pubs throughout our nation have suffered declining patronage and, unfortunately, the Magic Garden is no exception.  As a result, we at the Magic Garden have been left with little choice and have made the decision to cancel all upcoming music and entertainment events effective immediately and until further notice. We value all of our customers and staff and make this decision for the benefit of all who enjoy our establishment.  We will be watching the daily updates from the government and will resume entertainment once we are confident to do so.  In the meantime, we welcome all those who would like to come and see us, have a drink and say hello.

Sincerely,

The Magic Garden
