Award-winning Romanian singer-songwriter, puppeteer and actress, Monooka performs traditional songs from  the Carpathian mountains in a powerful collaboration with three British musicians: fiddler Meg Hamilton, guitarist Matt Bacon and double bassist Paul Moylan. With refreshing spontaneity and a distinctive voice, Monooka blends fiery Gypsy music with the eclectic Romanian songs of her roots.  She mixes story telling with marionettes, soulful songs and unique artistic freedom.
