Romania 100: Songs of Love and Longing


Romania 100: Songs of Love And Longing is the newest project from Romanian born, Dublin residing vocalist, Aleka. The project coincides with the centenary of the unification of Romania and will feature imaginative reworkings of folk and popular songs that span the history of Romania’s past 100 years. The concert features the leading lights of Dublin’s new generation of jazz musicians with Chris Guilfoyle on guitar, bassist Barry Donohue and the dual drum talents of Matthew Jacobson and Brendan Doherty. This promises to be a unique and special night not only in the Dublin jazz calendar but also for the wider Romanian community based in Dublin.
