The world’s greatest Gypsy band reclaim the classics!

Over the last century, many composers drew their inspiration from Gypsy music to create a vision of an exotic, mysterious (and large imaginary) Orient. Now they've turned the tables - as Taraf de Haidouks take hold of works by Bartok, Manuel de Falla and even Edward Ketelbey, and ‘re-gypsyfy’ them by giving them an exhilarating Taraf once-over.

Opening the concert in her British debut is Amira, a stunning singer from Sarajevo. Clive Davis evoked her style ‘Anyone familiar with that timeless Portuguese emotion known as saudade will detect a similar sense of longing and nostalgia in the blues-tinged sevdah tradition’.
