A musical bridge between East and West

Violinist superstar Florin Niculescu heads an international quintet composed of five extraordinary musicians playing violin, piano, guitar, double bass, and percussion. The music they create is an exciting fusion between jazz and traditional Romanian folk. Niculescu and his band perform a repertoire of Romanian songs and jazz sounds, in which improvisation functions as the bridge between East and West.

Florin Niculescu (°1967, Bucharest) is a Romanian violinist of Romani (Gypsy) ethnicity. He is considered one of the best jazz manouche violinists alive today and is known for his impressive technique and virtuosity as well as for his musical sensitivity.

Niculescu was born into a family of educated lăutari or gypsy musicians and started playing music at a very early age. It was while playing at weddings and other community celebrations that he developed his strong sense of improvisation. He has recorded numerous albums and has collaborated with famous jazz artists such as Jimmy Rosenberg, Babik Reinhardt (son of Django Reinhardt), Dee Dee Bridgewater, and the opera diva Angela Gheorghiu.
