Welcome to the official VIA ROMEN ensemble website
Founded in 2004 by two Romany speakers, VIA ROMEN has performed to glowing reviews across North America and established itself as the continent’s premier Russian-Romany (Gypsy) group. In fact, in 2008 and 2009 two of the band’s members got a taste of pop-stardom as soloists in Madonna’s world tour.
Despite being deeply rooted in traditional Romany repertoires and dialects from different parts of Europe, the music is enriched by jazz, Jewish and Latin styles, and it’s a completely new experience.
Tradition is more than whatever happened in the past – it is constantly renewed. We offer a glimpse into the lives of real Romany musicians and their relationships, historical and current, with other performers.
