Delivering what Time Out magazine describes as ‘extreme virtuoso, Balkan gypsy music’, Dunajska Kapeleye make their debut at The Lamb Folk Club on Wednesday, August 6.

Led by violin virtuoso Piotr Jordan, the band’s material originates mostly from Eastern Europe, including Poland, Romania, Hungary as well as Russia, and many of the tunes are based on old folk tales.

Loved by World music and folk fans, the ensemble creates a unique atmosphere as it takes audiences on a musical journey evoking the extremes of human emotion, from the deep sadness of a gypsy lament to the rumbustious joy of a Klezmer wedding dance.

With their irresistible fusion of passion, finesse and dazzling technique, seeing them live is a truly rewarding experience and they have delighted audiences at many of the country’s best known venues, including The Royal Albert Hall and Southbank Centre.

All are welcome, admission is £7 on the door and the music starts at 8pm. The number for any enquiries is 728268.
