Mediterranean/ World Music influenced by Romani culture. Founded in 2015 by multi-genre guitarist Elijah Kraatz as a band to perform some of his original compositions inspired by Romani/Gypsy music. Since then the group, which began life with only three instruments, has experimented and morphed until in late summer 2017 it included six of the area’s top musicians. Adding a few modern touches, Kraatz has steered the group on an original, yet traditional, Romani course. Band members also include Keith Levenson on percussion and Holly Thistle on violin.
