Faith I Branko

Faith_i_branko_header

Branko Ristic, predicted by UK fRoots to become ‘one of the leading Roma Violinists of the century’, has joined with Faith Ristic – a highly charismatic and virtuosic UK accordionist – to compose and perform a style that draws from each of their musical heritages and expresses their unique personal connection. Branko taught himself the violin, which became a way out of the extreme health, social and economic problems through which he lived in Serbia; he created his own music – intuitively combining sounds of Jazz, Indian, Turkish and Classical music with his Roma traditions. The duo met in Branko’s Roma village in 2009, and – with music as their only tool for communication – began a journey that would lead to the creation of their debut album ‘Gypsy Lover’ and their marriage.
