Virtuoso Bibs Ekkel & Adrian Zolotuhin present Folk & Gypsy music from Russia and eastern Europe featuring instruments from their collection
About this Event
Bibs Ekkel, prima balalaika soloist, is one of few masters of the instrument outside Russia. His style elevates the balalaika to the stature of concert instrument while retaining close ties with the instrument’s folk heritage. He has entertained Royalty as well as ordinary folk with his extensive repertoire in settings ranging from cabaret to symphony hall. He has toured regularly with his song and dance company, “Tziganka” and folk group “Russian Tornado” and performed as soloist throughout the world – with concert and TV appearances in Russia, Poland, China, Britain, the US and Canada. Movie soundtracks include Enemy at the Gates, Eastern Promises, Englishman Abroad, The Man who Knew too Little.
Strummer of guitar and a plethora of fretted instruments, Adrian Zolotuhin started performing professionally aged fifteen with Russian folk ensemble Kabak and alt-rock band Honeycomb Veil. Over the years he’s played rock, pop, jazz, world music and orchestral styles, and has performed at venues from The Marquee club to the Royal Opera House. He tours regularly with Budapest Café Orchestra, instrumental ensemble Sultan’s Picnic and funky pop band Twisted Karaoke. He is a regular collaborator with composer Howard Moody and his orchestra La Folia, and appears on the soundtracks of films & TV dramas including The Silver Skates, The Lost Prince, Our Kind of Traitor and Kursk.
