This five-piece play a lively jazzy mix of East and West European, North African and Latin music fronted by guitars and violin and ably supported by double bass and a great percussion section.
They will take you on an exciting tour of musical influences from around the world, from Morocco, Jamaica and Buenos Aires to Paris, Budapest and the Balkans.
They’re very much on board with what touring to small venues is all about and say “At our last Rural Touring performance one elderly man thanked us a afterwards, saying he felt ‘completely carried away into another world’ and another, aged 94, bought our cd and asked us all to sign it!”
Band leader Nina Trott on violin adds her own compositions into the musical line up including the signature piece ‘Banska Nights’ based on her Eastern European heritage, which makes for a brilliant finale.
It’s clear from their passionate performances that the band put as much energy into their concerts in small halls as they do their many bookings at the top Jazz and World music festivals they are booked for.
