A Night in Georgia - Weds 3 December

I'm hosting an evening of live Balkan, gypsy and Eastern European music this Wednesday 3 December at Cafe Jazz, St Mary Street, Cardiff.

It's called A Night in Georgia in honour of the headlining act, Newport's very own Georgian gypsy punks Rogora Khart (pictured above). After seeing them play TJs a few weeks ago, I just had to offer them a gig in the capital.

They'll be supported by a range of attractions, including Hungarian violinist Emese Hruska, accordioniste Cat Razzell, klezmer dancing from Siluria, a Turkish gypsy dance from Stephanie, plus some upbeat Balkan beats on CD from myself as DJ, host and MC for the evening.

Chances are there'll also be some surprise special guests as people are clamouring to be part of this event.

The fun starts at 9pm and admission is £4.
