Faith and Branko + Dj Jon Bongly

June 1 @ 8:00 pm - June 2 @ 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!
