Local music fans have a rare chance to hear live music from the Klezmer, Balkan, Greek and Roma traditions at a concert in Martletwy next week.
Opa Rosa comprises five virtuoso musicians who are all well-versed in this rich musical heritage and their repertoire ranges from soulful Balkan blues to foot-stomping Jewish wedding dances.
While respecting the traditional roots of the music, Opa Rosa draw from other musical influences such as rock, classical and jazz.
With their line-up of violin, clarinet, accordion, double bass and percussion, they have become festival favourites all over Britain, both for their musicianship and for their ability to get people up and dancing.
Following the release of their debut album ‘A Feast from the East’ they have toured internationally and captivated audiences with their high-energy and engaging performances.
The concert at the Snooty Fox, near Oakwood, organised by the Friends of Burnett’s Hill Chapel, is on Wednesday, March 15 at 7.30 pm.
