Award-winning Romanian singer Monooka has collaborated with artists, poets, actors and musicians across Europe including Taraf de Haidouks, She’Koyokh and with Roots Revival in Romania’s most prestigious concert halls and theatres. With Monooka’s Caravan she reinterprets traditional songs from the Carpathian mountains in collaboration with three British musicians specialising in Balkan music: fiddler Meg Hamilton, guitarist Matt Bacon and bassist Paul Moylan. Together they blend fiery Romanian folk and Gypsy songs with jazz, improvisation and refreshing spontaneity.
‘She’s a genuine talent!’ Romanian Cultural Institute, London.
The venue is a deliciously sumptuous sofa-filled home-crafted cinema like none other, housed in a beautiful building oozing the history both of the neighbourhood and of costume creation. Even the loos are like none other in London!! Uniquely again, a ticket entitles you to free tea/coffee. Stronger stuff is available at the riverside Mayflower Pub, only a few cobble stones away. Sands Films is an inspiring intimate place to hear fabulous music.
