Karmana, Songs of the Roma
Simon Thacker and Justyna Jablonska
Scottish virtuoso guitarist and composer Simon Thacker returns to create a new Romani musical journey in this dazzling world première featuring reimagined Gypsy songs and original works inspired by Indian, Balkan and Spanish traditions. Thacker is joined by the outstanding Polish cellist Justyna Jablonska and one of the Roma Gypsy tradition’s finest exponents, singer and violinist Masha Natanson. Embracing the incredible talents of three diverse musicians and one of the world’s great song traditions, Karmana (Sanskrit for ‘performing anything by means of magic’) features music of a rare emotional directness and spontaneity.
