Shot through with searing jazz improvisation Dunajska Kapelye play truly authentic Gypsy and Balkan Folk music taking their listeners on a stunning musical tour of Eastern Europe, where wends the Danube (from whence their name), featuring plaintive Gypsy ballads, tub-thumping Romanian wedding dances, elements of tango and klezmer. Led by Polish Piotr Jordan’s many-hued and ever-virtuosic violin-playing, composer and multi-instrumentalist Zac Gvirtzman on accordion and clarinet, and renowned double bassist Paul Moylan, their music is an irresistible fusion of passion and finesse - of dazzling technique and deep emotional impact.
“Extreme virtuoso Balkan gypsy jazz from this quartet with a huge repertoire of thrilling jazz and classical tinged pieces that sweep from pathos-laden ballads through to helter-skelter intricacy at amphetamine-pumping tempos.” Time Out London.
