Here Come Gadjo Tzigani - The Strange Gypsies - especially when they talk (English is not their first language!). Luckily they communicate through music. This they do very well! An impressive, fiery, frenzied group, a concoction of tunes played daringly.
Amongst these musicians is a prodigy twelve-year-old gypsy girl; a sensational Russian violin player who is also a composer; an exceptional piano-player who performed in over 59 countries; one of the most versatile guitarists in the Melbourne music scene. Most of these talented musicians have obtained the highest classical music training such as the Gadjo Tzigani cellist, who established the Georgian Chamber Orchestra and the renowned balalaika virtuoso with a Master of Arts.
With all their impressive biographies, these musicians are also the common folk - with all their exaggerations, deep emotions and contradictions. They play straightforward music that speaks to the core of a person.
Gadjo Tzigani create universal world music. Their music is born from an often improvised, yet never naïve overlaying of styles, motifs and sounds from the most diverse genres and the most captivating cultures - Russia, Ireland, Hungary, Romania, France, Greece, Middle East, Armenia.
This is an exclusive opportunity to witness the interplay between world-class musicians.
