24 Oct 2020 Once Only Event
Hard-luck music, prison songs and lickety-split dances from the backstreets of Bucharest.
The band especially features the cimbalom, a semi-extinct instrument that refused to go quietly. Imagine the offspring of a honkytonk piano and xylophone, backed up by blistering accordion, sinuous violin, and rumbling double bass.
From diverse and colourful strands – Ottoman court music, raw Balkan peasant folk, a handful of tango and jazz – Super Rats weave a magic carpet to whisk you away to distant times and places, in two completely different intimate shows full of panache, humour and dedication.
