Driving folk, Gypsy campfires and Budapest café life
1:50pm Wednesday 25th September 2013 in News
RESIDENTS are being invited to be swept away to far off lands and gypsy campfires when the Budapest café Orchestra comes to the Artrix.
Inspired by the music of European Gypsies among many other influences, the group offer a wide-ranging programme of impassioned Hungarian Czardas, tender Russian folk melodies, rollicking dances from Romania and Moldavia, bitter sweet Jewish laments.
They will also be playing electrifying compositions of the group's own making.
Comprising four players of violins, guitar, accordion, double bass, saz and balalaika and evoking images of the Tzigane fiddle, the band boasts some of the country’s most revered international stars.
Something that makes it impossible to believe that the band is actually from Harringay in North London.
The energetic and entertaining show is on October 10 starting at 8pm.
Ticket prices are £15 (£13 concessions) available from the box office on 01527 577330 or via artrix.co.uk.
