Village Band

A vibrant community ensemble led and taught by Gundula, performing a wide repertoire of soulful and wild dance tunes that originate from South and East of the Danube.

Russian Gyspy Soul

A stunning music and dance show that brings the colour, energy and nostalgia of Moscova Romani theatre to London.
