Dui Dui: Fran & Flora + Tsvey Kipperim
Fran&Flora + Tsvey Kipperim
Entry Requirements: None
Klezmer, Roma and Balkan music meet two new and exciting young duos; Fran & Flora and Tsvey Kipperim. Rising stars of the Klezmer and Balkan scenes, Francesca Ter-Berg (cello), Flora Curzon (fiddle), Dan Gouly (clarinet) and Josh Middleton (accordion), combine their passion for the traditional, the improvised and the absurd together in this new collaboration to share and perform their favourite tunes.
The programme will include a deep exploration of traditional music from Eastern Europe. Each player, having travelled extensively, learned from iconic masters, including Tcha Limberger, Dr Alan Bern, Frank London, Ross Daly and Peter Ralchev, to name a few. The four members bring together elements of traditional Jewish, Balkan and Roma repertoire into their unique performance, adding to it their distinct arrangements which culminate in a collaborative twist.
Tickets £10 / £8 students and £12.50 on the door
This is a collaboration between violinist Flora Curzon and folk/experimental cellist Francesca Ter-Berg combines aspects of traditional string music from Eastern Europe with original compositions and experimental electronics.
Having performed with Talvin Singh, Sam Lee, Hejira, Floating Points, Jocelyn Pook, Dunajska Kapelye and the London Klezmer Quartet, this project brings together Fran and Flora's shared love of melodic lyricism, groove, improvisation and experimentation. Influenced by Eastern European, Middle Eastern, Celtic and Breton folk and gypsy music, Fran and Flora combine these traditions with their own unique arrangement style to create a sound that is both timeless and contemporary. Their album will be released on Lima Limo Records in 2017.
