In the project Angrusori, initiated by Kitchen Orchestra, Tou Scene (Stavanger, Norway) and Cinefil (Kosice, Slovakia), Roma musicians from Slovakia meet Norwegian musicians.

The subject is the Roma songs and musical practice re-interpreted.

The CD "Angrusori - Live at Tou" has received great international acclaim and even won the Slovak "Radio Head Award" for best album in Folk/World music.

The project started as musicians met twice during Autumn 2016 and twice during Spring 2017, ending with a recording session and public performance at Tou Scene, Stavanger,  end of April 2017.

In May 2022 a tour of Slovakia took place, which will be followed by concerts in Norway.

Violinist/singer Iva Bittová also participates in the project. The contact with the Roma musicians is supervised by Zudro / Jana Belisova.


"The result is a mesmerizing and moving glimpse of the soul of a secluded society, told through a musical fusion that foregrounds tradition: timeless songs of heartbreak, illness and poverty take centre stage, augmented by the subtlest of improvisatory gambits". (The Wire Magazine)

"I would say that within the framework of Angrusori a new, multi-layered aesthetics got life, [...] All in all, an amazing project that I sincerely recommend to all lovers of non-standard music." (Jazzquad, Russia)

"The result is a spontaneous and fascinating work. Lyrics and popular narratives blend with melancholy and unbridled rhythms. Significant." 5/5 (Il Manifesto, Italia)

"Brilliant musicianship, vocalists with soul, inventiveness, guts, courage, perfect balance between past and present." 6/6 (Stavanger Aftenblad, Norway)
