Enjoy a wonderful evening of Eastern European music with the Czinka Panna trio, in Berkeley on Wednesday Oct 10. The performance will include traditional and Romani ("Gypsy") music from Hungary, Romania, Russia, and beyond.
Ineke Koksma - Violin
Olle ten Cate - Accordion
Balder ten Cate - Cimbalom
Czinka Panna is a violin-accordion duo from The Netherlands, with a large repertoire of mostly eastern European music, including Hungarian, Romanian, Russian and Romani ("Gypsy") melodies, but also Klezmer, Italian, some French and romantic film music. For this show, they will be joined on guitar and cimbalom by their son.
The ensemble is named after the legendary 18th century female Hungarian-Romani violinist and (in modern parlance) badass woman Czinka Panna, who lived near Budapest (Hungary) and would entertain for the local nobility with her family band.
