The larger-than-life Hungarian violinist Roby Lakatos and his band will treat us to a brilliant programme of traditional Romani music preserved in the family tradition. And the dynamic quintet Vula Viels music is an engaging mix of African, electronica and Minimalist influences.  For more information please click here.
