Concert July 5th at 20:00
Krilja is a trio based in Gothenburg, Sweden, who plays traditional Roma/Gypsy songs from Russia and Eastern Europe. The music is of uncertain date but in many cases from the 19th century and onwards and shifts between lyrical melancholy and fiery intensity. The lyrics of the songs are in Romanes and Russian, and tells of sorrow, pain, poverty and suffering, but also love and passion. The arrangements have been improvised by the musicians.
