The Legendary Gypsy Kings and Queens (2)

These two photos feature the other singer who performed as part of the Legendary Gypsy Kings and Queens show, Esma Redzepova from Macedonia. She was actually the reason I wanted to see the show (I saw her perform a few years ago when I was in Sibiu* in Romania), and she certainly didn’t disappoint. However I must say that all the other acts were also so good that even if she hadn’t been performing I would have more than got my money’s worth! What a brilliant night.

* Folks, Sibiu Daily Photo has its final photo tomorrow. It’s been brilliant reliving my few months there – if you’ve not seen it check out a beautiful little city 🙂

Back to Celtic Connections, and a show at the Royal Concert Hall called “The Legendary Gypsy Kings and Queens”. This featured 2 house bands (Kaloome from France and Mahala Rai Banda from Romania) who were both amazing, and a number of singers and dancers. These pictures show the bands with singers Florentina Sandu from Romania and Jony Iliev from Bulgaria, and dancers Aurela Sandu and Tantzica Ionita.
