Krilja is a Gothenburg-based trio that plays traditional Roma songs from Russia and Eastern Europe. The music is of indefinite age but in many cases from the 19th century onwards and alternates between the lyrically melancholic and the fiery intense. The texts are in Romanesque and Russian and are about grief, pain, poverty and suffering, but also about love and passion.

The arrangements consist of the own interpretations that the musicians have improvised, often influenced by, among other things, flamenco, but are still faithful to the traditional style. The name Krilja means "wings" in some Roman dialects and also in Russian.

The concert will take place outdoors, right next to Frölunda Kulturhus.
