A new Romani musical journey by one of the UK's most accomplished musical figures, Scottish guitarist and composer Simon Thacker, featuring Polish cellist Justyna Jablonska and traditional Roma singer/violinist Masha Natanson. Contrasting his vivid re-imagining of songs from the gypsy tradition with wonderfully inventive new instrumental music, Thacker draws on and extends European, Indian and Balkan folk forms, and of course flamenco, as well as reimagines traditional songs in Romani, Romanian, Serbian and Russian languages. Songs of the Roma premiered at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2016 as part of the prestigious Made in Scotland showcase and a track features on Simon and Justyna's acclaimed 2017 Karmana album.
