A Night in Georgia - many thanks!

Thanks to everyone who helped make A Night in Georgia at Cafe Jazz in Cardiff a great success.

This one-off evening of Eastern European tunes, Balkan beats and gypsy dances was staged to provide a showcase for Newport's very own Georgian gypsy punks Rogora Khart (pictured above) who went down a storm.

Top marks to musical support acts Emese Hruska on violin, Jeff Japers on ukulele, and Cat Razzell on accordion - hard to believe she'd never played the instrument in public before.

Thanks also to my bellydancing friends Rachel Jones aka Siluria and Stephanie who added a touch of gypsy glamour to the night.

Don't forget our bellydance event at Cafe Jazz next Thursday 11 December - A Night in Tunisia with live music from Chas Whitaker on percussion and Maren Lueg on reeds.

BBC South East Wales website for some more photos of A Night in Georgia.
