2016 Western Australian Circus Festival Saturday 23rd - Sunday 24th - Monday 25th January 2016

Faith y Branko

Branko Ristic – ‘a performer that Paganini would be proud of’ [BBC Radio 3], and UK born ‘nimble accordionist’ [The Guardian] – Faith Ristic, form the core of this international quintet.

Combining the accordion, violin, effects pedal and tabor pipe with double bass, guitar and drums to 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.

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 album Gypsy Lover being placed in the top 10 World Music Albums in the European World Music Charts
