Roma Music | Summer 2023
Dates: Monday 19th - Friday 23rd June 2023, 6.30-8.30pm
Course Fee: £115 (full), £95 (concession)
Whatever your instrument, here's a chance to play some authentic Roma music from virtuosic Serbian Roma Violinist Branko Ristic, and accordionist Faith Ristic. The course will look at melodies, improvisation, trills and rhythms within different pieces. All levels and instruments welcome - arrangements and tuition will be customized to the instruments present.
Branko Ristic, 'a performer that Paganini would be proud of' [BBC Radio 3], is one of the few Roma Violinists performing in the UK, and is recording artist on Emir Kusturica's films. He and Faith are releasing their next album with assistance from The No Smoking Orchestra [Riverboat Records], and have a hands on, authentic approach to teaching the specific elements of this music.
