The Balagan Cafe Band are a highly skilled and vibrant London based trio who create a musical mix like no other band, “…marrying jazz, classical and related music from all over the world.. this is music for the ears, heart and feet!”

This music features the intimate chamber instrumentation of violin, guitar, cello and accordion and an elegant yet fiery fusion of improvisation and written music.

Ranging from Parisian and American Jazz, the Chaabi music of Algeria, Tango from Argentina, Balkan folk melodies through to the early modern and folk music of Western Europe, Balagan fuses these threads into a coherent and characteristic sound that is all their own.

The past couple of years have seen the band perform at venues including the Elgar Room, Omnibus and National Portrait Gallery to enthusiastic public responses. The ensemble features some of the UK’s most versatile and capable artists.

Christian Miller – Guitar/Leader

Richard Jones – Violin

Shirley Smart – Cello

Tickets: £8.00 adult/16yrs and under £6.00
