Million in Hungary

I have just spent three days in Budapest with Community Music, a charity I work with. We were there to oversee a new project which aims to assist Romano Gypsies learn music production and studio skills. A four day workshop was followed by a gig at the A38 club, a floating venue in a boat moored on the Danube. The hope is that local trainers will launch a full time course and students from UK and Hungary can work closer together. One current plan is for a gig to be held on London’s South Bank on June 16th featuring Czech artiste,, who played an amazing set in A38 backed by local gypsy band Romano Drom – an incredible fusion of traditional gypsy tunes and hip-hop.
