The Serbian-Roma/UK quartet 'Faith i Branko' recently returned from their 43-venue tour of Australia and New Zealand with Band Aide Management, including main stage performances at Port Fairy Festival, National Folk Festival, Blue Mountains Festival, Cygnet Festival, Illawarra Festival and The Hub Theatre. Listen to them on ABC Sydney 'The Music Show' with Penny Lomax. They are currently working on finalising their PRS sponsored Album with Emir Kusturica in Serbia, and filming with actress Branka Katic [UK/Serbia. Creds. Black Cat White Cat/ Public Enemies/ Captain America] on a single/music video release to accompany the album. Their Serbian Film Fund sponsored documentary 'Faith i Branko' shall be released to tour film festivals at the end of 2018, and the album shall be released with World Music Network (Rough Guides) after the success of their previous album 'Gypsy Lover' (10th in the European World Music Charts) / WOMEX.

Over the last year they have performed at Rosa Sinta Festival (Netherlands); Culture Nomade (Switzerland); Diobar (Barcelona); Festival of Light (UK); The Royal Festival Hall (UK); Longo Mai (France); The Southbank Centre; Bristol Old Vic Theatre; The Houses of Parliament; Wilderness Festival; Boomtown Festival; Henley Festival; Bestival, and Glastonbury among others. Social Media hits are over 50,000.

Branko Ristic – ‘a performer that Paganini would be proud of’ [BBC Radio 3], and UK born ‘nimble accordionist’ [The Guardian] - Faith Elliott, form the core of this international quartet - combining the accordion, violin, effects pedal and tabor pipe with guitar and percussion to take the audience on a journey from melancholy Roma violin laments to storming ‘kolos’ and explorations into jazz improvisation, swing, Gypsy Rumba and Turkish and Indian influenced songs. The duo met in Branko's Romani village in 2009 - and with music as their only tool for communication - began a journey that would lead to their marriage, their album Gypsy Lover being placed in the top 10 World Music Albums in the European World Music Charts, and a successful international touring schedule.

They are amongst the 3 most broadcast albums to put their record label 'Riverboat Records/World Music Network' in the WOMEX Top 15 Label Awards. International touring includes Canberra Lights Out (Australia); Kustendorf Film Festival (Serbia); Vienna Roma Festival; Tasmania and Sydney; radio play includes BBC Radio 3 Live Sessions, World Service with Stephen Fry, BBC Radio 6; ABC Sydney and Canberra National among others.
