Ando Glaso Collective brings together some of the best musicians from Scotland’s Romanian, Polish, Slovak, Czech and Hungarian Roma communities, to showcase the vibrant and often invisible cultural heritage of Scotland’s Roma people.
Founded in 2019, the collective works with the diverse and fragmented Roma communities of Scotland to explore each other’s cultural heritage and create music together. This celebrated band has been funded by Creative Scotland and has appeared at prestigious events such as Celtic Connections.
This special event is part of a collaborative project inspired by Talking Gigs and working alongside Welcoming Cultures and University of Sheffield Concerts. A social forum celebrating Roma culture will happen ahead of the main performance – with food, discussion, music and dance. Places for the forum are free, but tickets must be reserved.
What is a Talking Gig? This innovative format combines musically illustrated discussion in the first half, and a full performance in the second half, allowing both the music, and the musicians, to really speak!
This event is supported by funding from Sheffield Central LAC and Broomhill / Sharrow Vale ward councillors. This will help provide free community places at the concert and social forum.
