Julia Kozakova singing

Songs of Manuša LIVE: Julia Kozáková and band

Description

Friday 17th June 2022
 
Doors 6pm for a 6.30pm start
 
Júlia Kozáková is a world-music singer from Slovakia and also a student from the Music Department at SOAS. In this special one-off concert, supported by public funding providing by the Slovakia Arts Council, she will be performing with her new project Manuša which tracks old traditional Roma (Gypsy) songs and their stories from Slovakia and Central Europe.
 
These songs are a crucial part of the identity of Rumungre Roma, which are sadlychallenged by the ongoing marginalization of Roma minority. In this exciting online performance, Kozáková will perform with a traditional cimbalom band composed of some of the most recognized Roma musicians from Slovakia.
 
We had a wonderful online concert from Julia and her group in summer 2021, and we're extremely excited to be able to welcome them to SOAS in person, a year on.
