22nd of October 2016: Gogonele trio on stage at La tête des trains in Tousson (77)!

En roumain, les "gogonele” sont des tomates vertes marinées en saumure. On les affectionne tout particulièrement en Europe centrale et orientale, de la Grèce à la Russie, de la Turquie à la Serbie et... jusqu'en France ! D’où le nom de ce trio énergique et sans conservateurs qui reprend à sa sauce l'étendue richesse musicale des contrées balkaniques.

Poster of the play

Poster of the play
Zobar is a theatrical adaptation of the eponym film by Emil Loteanu (after a novel by Maxim Gorky). The play was directed by Monica Tracke. It includes many musical moments. Most songs are from the film. They are sung in Romanes (Gypsy language). I helped during the creation of the play with some translations and advice on the musical arrangements.

I also accompanied the play on stage (kaval flute, bouzouki, melodica) for 4 of the dates at Théatre de Ménilmontant, together with Romain Leblanc (guitar) and Estelle Amy de la Bretèque (vocals, percussion).

After a break, Monica’s Zobar was rewritten and continued its own route, with more performances planned for 2015.
