'Musically a delight..these virtuosic performers are a major discovery this year' The Guardian, UK

'Moving, breathtaking and virtuosic' Lopa Kothari, BBC Radio 3, UK

'Quite remarkable musicians' Stephen Fry, BBC World Service


Leading Serbian Roma violinist Branko Ristic – 'a performer that Paganini would be proud of' [BBC Radio 3], and English 'passionate nimble-fingered accordionist' Faith Ristic [Rhythms Magazine, Australia] perform virtuosic original Roma-influenced music with their international ensemble.

The duo met in Branko's Romani village in 2009, and – with music as their only tool for communication – began a journey that would lead to their marriage, their last album 'Gypsy Lover' being placed in the top 10 World Music Charts, a successful international touring schedule and a soon to be released documentary. From a foundation of 'Serbian-Roma' music, Faith i Branko have created a style that draws from both of their musical heritages and expresses their unique personal connection. This forms an original set with a storming ensemble which is joyous, passionate, tragic and virtuosic: "Their music is as colourful, personal and tumultuous as their history" – fRoots
