Having travelled across Europe and North America to study with many great masters of Eastern European Roma and Klezmer music Fran & Flora perform this repertoire incorporating their own unique arrangements creating a sound that is both timeless and contemporary, captivating their audiences with soulful laments, exquisite songs, irresistible dance tunes, and tales of their musical adventures.

London's best kept secret! ...This is a string duo bound for glory.
