I was recommended to write to you by our Australian Agency representatives (Band Aide Management). The Serbian-Roma/UK quartet ‘Faith i Branko’ are currently finalising their 2018 tour of Aus/NZ and have some performance days left to fill.They shall be touring their latest PRS-Sponsored Album (recorded with Emir Kusturica/The No Smoking Orchestra/TB released with World Music Network Jan 2018) after the success of their previous album ‘Gypsy Lover’ (10th in the European World Music Charts)/ WOMEX. We have a fairly booked up tour of Australia but are still looking for some house gigs and it would be great to perform at your venue.
Here is some more information below – let me know if you’re interested.
They have performed this summer at The Royal Festival Hall; The Southbank Centre; The Royal Albert Hall; Bristol Old Vic Theatre; The Houses of Parliament; Wilderness Festival; Boomtown Festival; Henley Festival; Bestival, and Glastonbury among others.
