'Set to become one of the leading Roma Violinists of the century' FRoots UK

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
