OLEG PONOMAREV'S KOSHKA

Russian Winter and Gypsy Fire

Gypsy super-trio Koshka - Oleg Ponomarev and Lev Atlas (violins) and Nigel Clark (guitar) - bring a seasonal flavour from Russia this December.

Their vibrant, enthralling Gypsy music, combining conservatoire rigour with sheer, wild Gypsy flair (plus more than a touch of wit and innovation) is interspersed with tales and anecdotes giving an insight into the traditions of winter and Christmas in their native Russia.

With a recently released new album, Koshka are breathtaking, dazzling musicians, the fiddles soaring with passion and precision as they scale ever dizzier heights of creativity and invention.
